Useful, yes. But I guess it's simply a legal problem. Just because a
datasheet can be downloaded for free from the manufacturers website 
doesn't mean that you are entitled to re-publish it on your site.
You'd have to obtain permission (in writing) for each datasheet,
otherwise you can easily run into legal problems.

Thanks,
Hans
