Yes, I'm well aware that the documentation has over time become the weak 
spot in ReSpec. It used to be both complete and accurate; nowadays the 
vast majority of it is still okay (since we're pretty much backwards 
compatible all the way) but new things are missing and there are some 
outdated bits.

I'm short on time though, so I don't expect to get around to improving 
it before summer. It's an open source project though :)

Just to be clear, I don't plan to limit the output to polyglot. I plan 
to keep the HTML output as it is today, and to replace the XHTML output 
with polyglot.
