The manual is created using FrameMaker, a proprietary typesetting
system. AFAIK, the input is an XML file which has never been published.
Having it would be quite useful.

[1] is an example of a project using this XML file to derive a
machine-readable specification, as noted in the diagram in the project's
README. They don't mention their source for the XML file nor do they
publish it, so I assume this must have been provided confidentially to
them by IBM. Perhaps contacting the project authors would provide some
