True. 2.2 gives the opportunity to change the URLs, so let's take that

Do leave the documentation in Daisy, create separate collections and if 
necessary separate sites for each block, but don't move it out of Daisy 
to something that is as cumbersome as the old xdocs situation.

Now that the docs are in Daisy more documentation has been written and 
updated than in a very long time before.

And if you do that, and all docs are still in one repository, the Daisy 
IDs won't change.

True. But I'd rather spend time and energy on improving/simplifying the 
current process of extracting Daisy docs onto the website than moving 
the docs to yet another system.

Besides, it's good for Cocoon that the docs are created with Cocoon.
