I would be very interested in this sort of documentation.  I would also
be interested in contributing what I know.  Have you seen the edje book
and similar things?

The big problem is the that things are still changing too much for any
big picture stuff to stay relevant for long.  The big picture for how
modules work for instance, it's gonna undergo a radical change any
minute now.  So any high level documentation will have to track some
rapidly moving targets.
