It might be nice if different types of duplicate documentation could
be identified in the package and only selected types installed, or
generated.  For example, I could set up a system so that all the
documentation installed was HTML: installed directly if present, or
genrated using texi2html, info2www, man2html etc. if not, either on
the fly with dwww or at installation time.  Any unnecessary man pages
or info documentation could be dropped.

I don't really expect to see this soon though.

I have to agree with this.  I quite like Emacs' info reader, and
