Disagree very strongly.

If you don't include the docs within the CouchDB instance directory, then we will have no
record of the docs at a point in time. Say, if you wanted to see the docs for CouchDB 1.3,

Secondly, if they're no in the instance directory, then you cannot build them. That means
that people doing a source checkout will not be able to build the docs without going to special
lengths. And it means that we wont be able to include them in the release artefacts, because
you can't be pulling things from outside the source tree.

Not sure what you mean here.
