Nice post. I like Scott Ambler's take in Agile Modeling where he describes documents (models) as having 2 purposes: 1 - a means of (preferably collaboratively) working through a problem 2 - a means of communicating (again preferably collaboratively) and gaining agreement Neither are required to be "heavy weight". He also mentions that you update them when not to do so would cause pain. A simple example: I add split the Name field into First name and Last name in a database description; if this is easily understandable when looking at the database, I don't necessarily need to update my document(s). If it had been a more complex change, then perhaps I'd want to make a change in the documentation.

Many people find it helpful to write things down to organize their thoughts. Unfortunately they too often get hung up on a formal Word doc instead of informal notes, index cards, mind maps, visual thinking, white boards, etc. Here's my take on this topic: http://www.andrewfuqua.com/2011/02/comprehensive-documentation-bad.html
