This is a user to user Forum, so you are not really addressing Adobe here, even though some Adobe employees thankfully have been dropping by.
As far as I understand Adobe updates the References for its various products and while chapters on features that elude your version may be redundant to you they should not affect the information that does apply.
I believe this is an actionable violation of the license and promised features granted to me when I purchased CS6 Complete.
Quite frankly I think going this way was a regrettable decisions on Adobe’s part but I doubt your argument has merit.
Actually, and you may correct me if I'm wrong, all CS6 variants install Adobe Help. In Adobe Help you can download all reference documentation for the CS6 tools as PDF for offline access.
Doesn't it work for you?
However, I got CS6 and when accessing the help from within Indesign, I get here: InDesign Help | InDesign Help
There is a link Looking for InDesign CS6 Help? leading to the CS6 help for Indesign. Where's the problem?
I guess it works the same way for the other tools. At least it does for PS.
That's the point. Help Manager was hanging on downloads, so I implemented the "fix" suggested on http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/help-application-doesnt-update.html. (Fortunately I saved the PDF and Help directories recommended for deletion before removing them). So, after uninstalling and re-installing Air and Help Manager which fixed the hanging problem, help manager downloaded "Help" files for air and flex / flash selections, but NO PDF FILES FOR ANY CS6 APPLICATIONS. Except for Dreamweaver, all PDFs are now listed as "Unavailable" as are all the Air / dedicated web links except for Acrobat Pro X, and a few others that relate to flex, actionscript and flash. IOW, ADOBE NEVER MADE ALL THE CS6 PDF REFERENCE DOCUMENTS AVAILABLE AS PROMISED IN 2012, AND SOMETIME IN 2013 / 20134 DELETED THE ONES THAT WERE AVAILABLE FROM THEIR WEB SITES! Clearly, this was just another "F#*& You!" to those who won't be extorted into the Creative (not really) Cloud crap.
Yes, I second that. The CC and the policy behind is the worse thing they ever did.
But even if Adobe Help does not work as expected (because deprecated?), the reference files are still there: CS6 Help PDF files available in English
