If the collection contains the same information as the online documentation that comes with Mathematica it seems to me users would already have the notebooks used to generate the PDF files. If the information in the collection is different than the online documentation that comes with Mathematica, I agree downloading the notebooks would be more useful. But in this case, I am more interested in the differences. That is, I've no interest in downloading information in PDF format I already have in notebook format. But I do have an interest in those parts of the collection that would supplement the existing documentation.
