[PD] Where is the object reference documentation?

This is the exact goal of the FLOSS Manual. The site allows a PDF to be 
generated from the current status of the manual. I've been encouraging 
people not to reply solely on the images and patches, but to describe 
things in text as well in order to ensure its searchability.

One caveat, however, is that FLOSS documentation tends to follow the 
FLOSS software model of multi-authorship. Therefore, things get filled 
in as people have the drive to do so. The "professional", single-author 
model seems just as uncommon in the docs as it does in the software 
itself, so be careful what kind of standards you apply. Or you could go 
out and pay for something "professional"... ;-)
