Why no manual PDF with HW1: Classic?

Seems a shame to deny people who only bought the digital edition the PDF of the original manual. There’s a ton of world-building in it that really enriches the game.

It’s a shame that it’s not included. Luckily the manual is readily available online. Such as from here

+1, this definitely should be included. It’s part of the experience (especially for Homeworld where there was so much backstory in the manual).
