Can I ask you a question?

Why do all the css frameworks need more custom css for their docs site, wouldn't that mean that something is missing from the framework itself?

Because CSS frameworks only include most common and basic style and components, not all styles for everything.

but shouldn't the included styles be enough to build a basic site?

I think the point of css frameworks is to give you a solid base to build upon, not a be-all, end-all solution.
