Oh no. That's a very bad idea. All converters like latex2html, sgml-tools,  
texi2html produce not very perfect HTML code. You've to edit the HTML code  
to solve a lot of bugs.

There's no problem using .html.gz. The maintainers have to write sed  
scripts, to change the links in the documents itself.
