CB-5658 Delete stale snapshot of plugin docs

> Move plugin docs to plugin repos
> --------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-5658
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Docs, Plugin Battery Status, Plugin Camera, Plugin Console, Plugin
Contacts, Plugin Device, Plugin Device Motion, Plugin Device Orientation, Plugin Dialogs,
Plugin File, Plugin File Transfer, Plugin Geolocation, Plugin Globalization, Plugin InAppBrowser,
Plugin Media, Plugin Media Capture, Plugin Network Information, Plugin SplashScreen, Plugin
>            Reporter: Andrew Grieve
>            Assignee: Andrew Grieve
> This involves:
> 1. Delete the docs/ directory from all plugins
>    - They contain stale copies of what's in cordova-docs
> 2. Move plugin information found in cordova-docs into a single doc/ file within
the respective plugin repos
>    - Link to this file within each plugin's file
> 3. Delete the "API Reference" section of cordova-docs
> 4. Add a guide called "Cordova Plugins", which contains:
>   - a link to,
>   - a list of the org.apache.cordova plugins, which link to their files on github
>     - e.g.
>     - These can be changed to point at their page when that shows
>   - A link to the 3.3 docs, which still have plugin API reference
>     - Mostly, this is for finding non-english versions.
> Motivation:
> - Plugins are on a separate release cycle from platforms & docs.
>    - The documentation is often mismatched due to this
> - Pull requests for plugins don't update the plugin docs
>    - But I think they would if the docs were in the same repo
> Caveats:
> - This will mess up our current translations story for plugins. 
>   - I think this can be fixed up though, by changing out push / pull
>   - E.g. have translations go in: cordova-plugin-foo/translations/fr/
