Marc Heerdink may have said it best in a post to lfs-dev:

    The problem is that the FAQ is a dynamic document. The FAQ for
    a book release is released only after the book version itself,
    because the FAQ is updated to reflect the Qs asked about the
    current version of the book. A link is better, since you'll
    always have the most up-to-date answers handy.
