I am looking for a MSI/MST comparision tool that can output the changes to a file. Something that could be used as documentation of what was done. Or at least something that could give me a head start on documentation. Does such a tool exist?

I use a software called Tracker. It creates a "before" snapshot, then you run any software (or delete any software) that you need and then run a "after" snapshot. In a lot of cases you will have to search through the report to find what you need. The most useable feature by far (for me anyway) is the registry NEW, EDITED and DELETED section. This allows you to export any registry changes into a Wise or InstallShield MSI. There are quite a few other software packages like Tracker, but this one was the easiest to use.
