We don't send any documentation to the test labs unless they are
performing validations actions for us, for which we must pay them.

Also FYI for change letters the (unique/creative component of the)
documentation is trivial. As with most FIPS 140-2 documentation such
paperwork is very low in nutritional value and of essentially no value
to the end user. In particular it isn't going to help anyone "better
understand/review" the existing code. The code itself is open source, so
as Obi-Wan said, "use the source, Luke".
