The reference documentation is all we have.
If you search the web you might find lots of tutorials and other
information. But if you're looking for something official from the
authors you'll have to live with that.
What's wrong with it? Is it too extensive or not extensive enough?

No. It provides a configurable type system which currently supports EMF,
UML, XSD and any Java classes.
And you can even execute code without any models (EMF or not), e.g. by
passing a list of strings or the like.

When moved from oAW to EMP we have migrated the reference documentation
as is. We haven't had any other documents you could cite, had we?
