I'll agree with this to a large extent.

I would like to see the ZDP pull up alongside of DC and fill in the gaps.
If we could have some idea what documentation for them is lowest on their
priorities then we can know what best could be our priorities. They can
take the priority list and work top down and we can work bottom up. This
way when we meet the documentation is complete and little duplicate effort
has been made.

Just some thoughts.
