PHP Documentor is a good tool, how ever I believe that it needs to stay out of the main CI 4 package (and out of CI4 composer.json) .

At the moment with it composer auto install 45-50 additional packages (Symfony + Zend components and  many others..). 
I don't think that this fits with CI idea for light fast small framework. 

I understand that this is under the DEV env. but until 1 developer don't need it I don't think that it should be available. 

It will be bad experience for developers if they have to install all of those not used packages all the time when they start CI 4 project..
Yep, vendor folder size is 40MB+- after installation, but user are not force to using composer. Once you run 'composer install' it will download all component listed in composer.json. And required package such as ZendEscaper already include in /system/ThirdParty.
