I could not disagree more.  I'd say more like, if the dba won't read
the manual, get yourself a real dba.  Sorry, but so-called
professionals who won't learn their tools have no home in my shop.  

Recently, someone pointed out to me that there _was_ a deficiency
in the docs -- one I thought was not there.  And in that case, I was
more than willing to be chastised.  But claiming that inadequate
comments in the config file are the only things dbas will lok at,
well, frankly, I'm offended.
