You could, but once it's inside the codebase, you've lost it, and so has anyone who has to check that it's up to date, correct, etc.

And that's not to mention that the examples will be scattered all over the shop, with no way of knowing if they're in a good place that will be found by the developers looking for them -- an example for the CListCtrl class, for example, could contain a perfect one-line code example of using an "IceBox" object and its "keepBeerCool" method, which will never be found when developers search for a solution for their beer warming up, because, well, because they're wisely not using CListCtrl, are they?

If, on the other hand, all the usage-centric/use-case examples are in a word-processor document, it's dead easy to keep track of them all, dead easy to distribute them to people for checking/confirmation/etc, and dead easy for users (i.e. the poor mugs doing the developing with warm beer)to find them.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
