The docs say:

"The weight values are multiplied by the resulting color. It is then 
divided by the total of the weights which, in this example is 3.5."

I *think* this should be reworded to:

"The weight values are multiplied by the resulting color. They are then 
divided by the total of the weights which, in this example is 3.5."

OK ... it's been changed
http://wiki.povray.org/content/Documentation:Reference_Section_5.3#Average

I also added a trailing note at the end of passage about sunpos.inc
http://wiki.povray.org/content/Documentation:Reference_Section_7.5#sunpos.inc

BTW: I'd probably see stuff sooner over on the Wiki than here, but this 
works also.

Thanks
Jim
