There has long been a requirement that we do something that is easily  
mirror-able. I don't know if that's still a requirement. There's also  
the desire that the docs work "out of the box" on install, but I  
suppose that doesn't much matter any more with the 1.3 docs, since  
nobody should be installing them. We should bring the Infra folks into  
the conversation before we implement a server-side dynamic solution.

Having said that, yes, I agree that this is what we need to do, and  
would be glad to help in any way I can.
