It is not "agile" to document every decision you make when coding, meaning that the original dev probably had some reasons for building things the way they are. If there's an improvement to be made, I wanna know - it might teach me something and prevent me from making the same mistake in the future.

..but changing code that isn't broken needs a damned good reason - since any change has the potential to introduce new (and subtle) bugs.
