Thanks Charles for poiting this out.
In fact, we have various ways of presenting the documentation, e.g.:
* on the home page of the plugin
* as a submenu of the plugin menu

plugin1 --|--plugin1

* as a menu of the plugin popup window
* etc.

IMO we should provide clear guidelines on where to put it.
All the best.
