Regenerability of Games

I am kind of amused to realise that for book-RPGs, anyone who's been a GM/DM for long enough and is reasonably skilled in the art could regenerate the entire game from memory (even if the regenerated version has some differences). I suppose the same thing could go for a fair set of board games - inside all our heads are templates for so many games. Do we really need the boards and rules for all these things? Do we even need the (plentiful) websites where one can get PDFs of all of these? Perhaps it would be more interesting if people routinely regenerated games from memory, making new boards and stuff (easier for symmetrical games like Monopoly than asymmetrical ones like Axis and Allies -- balance issues).

For those really bored, I re-sync'd my website with my development version a few days ago.
