Absolutely. However I think that a paraphrased description of e.g. the 
calling conventions used by a particular CPU isn't something that could 
be copyrighted: patented, perhaps, or viewed as a leaked trade secret, 
but not copyrighted.

But I think that in most cases good links will be an adequate resource. 
Possibly with notes where GCC and/or FPC is known to deviate.
