How can I reuse the documentation of an interface in all classes that implements this interface?
I tried enabling the DocumentExplicitInterfaceImplementations option but it doesn't appear to work.

That option just include explicitly implemented interfaces in the help file.  Are you wanting to inherit documentation from the base class so that you don't have to retype it in each derived class?  If so, download the beta.  It supports the <inheritDoc /> tag which can be used to inherit class or member documentation.  See the Using the <inheritdoc /> Tag topic under the Getting Started section in the beta's help file for details.

That was exactly what I was wanting.
I will try the beta and the <inheritdoc /> tag.
