Re: My money

"My money ... is on the document having been written by a BOFH type of person."

My money is on a scenario such as the current sysadmin being asked to write the instructions for his successor.

Then at some point down the line someone else sees that document and asks for a copy to edit and redistribute for more general use, not realising that it contains production-specific information.
