Personally, I don't think that docs refactoring needs to be mentioned
in NEWS/CHANGES/changelog. Does anyone disagree?

Huh? Don't you mean that the other way around?

In other projects, we used to keep release branches as a true subset
of the master branch. That way, you can just keep merging the release
branch into master branch periodically (for every batch of fixes you
push). Would that work for this?
