Documents v. Reality

Here at Nyland our Board of Directors, on which I serve, is looking into 
revising our governing docs (CC&R's and Bylaws) to more accurately reflect the 
agreements we truly live by.  In a nutshell, the docs are pretty much standard 
issue HOA variety, which helps people get mortgages and such, and the community 
agreements are more "cohousing-ish."  This has worked for 20 years now, but 
some people feel they really ought to be more in line.  I find myself in the 
"let's not revise" camp because it looks like an awfully big job and I am not 
sure how changes away from the HOA norm might affect future financing options.  
I like the idea of greater consistency,  but wonder if it's worth it, or even 
possible since there are areas where we don't even really HAVE firm agreements. 
Has anyone else dealt with this?
