While it still might an interesting reading for somebody not involved in 
the compiler development I doubt it's usefulness. It requires a lot of 
work of some of the compiler developers but I doubt that a good 
developer needs such a document to get into the compiler so updating the 
document is wasted time in the sense of bringing the compiler forward.
