S-Media's self-damaging NDA-happiness

this will probably be very stupid:
can't they "employ" someone like a freelance programmer (a community
member of course)?
so-called only for 1 day (and give him the minimum wage or whatever)
wouldn't it be "ok" to send him the docs then?

Naturally he will shred those docs immediately when the day is over.....
after some time he can then maybe tell us he is a natural-born
documentation writer and on that one day he made his own documentation
(surely without the help of other community members) and would very
much like to share his work with us all.

the only problem is that there wouldn't be enough beer in the whole
world to thank him....

who knows... maybe he even did more on that one day then just document
it all....
