We split the documentation to facilitate easier reading and navigation, and
to emphasise the modularity approach. We did not intend to make it
difficult to read or print out offline, so for that we apologize.

For the future we can look into mechanisms to generate a compound single
HTML for the purposed you stated, as long as we don't introduce diversity;
while the specification is considered stable now there might still be a few
changes in the future, particularly around JSON-LD which specification is
in a similar stabilising phase.
