That is all well and good and if you really want to spend time re-writing
it great.

What I'm saying is that what I would like to see first and also is for the
documentation page on the main website to have a place for listing these
types of resources so they get some visibility.

Another example, a series of books I didn't see listed there from Bruce
Byfield who did a nice job a couple years back on Typographic Design with
LibreOffice. I'm sure there are others. I think the ROI would be much
greater doing that then rewriting things so they are LO branded and
distributed from the TDF infrastructure.
