I agree. I think the current Pd-extended focused manual could be moved to a Pd-extended location for historical reasons. The "main" Pd FLOSS manual should be Vanilla + links or sections to active forks including the original Pd-extended manual. The current manual could then be refactored/updated and existing links would not be *terribly* broken.
