Yes, in principle.
However, I do think that document should be published in a better way 
first and it should probably also be reorganized a bit.

Problems with current publication:
- Not very visible: it is buried in the translation status page (which
  is getting too long and IMO should be split anyway).
- Links in index don't work because doc was renamed after creation:
  http://people.debian.org/~seppy/d-i/d-i-i18n-documentation/i18n.html
- Important information (like coordination.txt) is not directly accessible
  from the document.

I would also suggest to build the chapters as separate HTML files.

Regarding reorganization. If the manual is included, there should probably 
a more general introduction (coordination, intro of levels/manual, 
statistics, spellchecking) and after that a clear separation between 
stuff relating to d-i translation (level 1), general debian translation 
(level 2+) and manual translation.

I'm willing to help out with this, but it does not have high priority for 
me.

Cheers,
Frans
