Well I don't know about emacs-doc (I'm vi_holic :-), but I would say
"user docs" and manpages to stay inside the binary package, while huge
bunch of other docs (development docs, e.g., but also Usenet-FAQs, HOWTO
in several format/language) as well as journals, bible (no binary: it
should split in two packages) and Shakespeare Opera Omnia stay

Right. The main idea was to keep up-to-date informations that changes
often, like HOWTOS FAQs and newspapers/enzines. (debian users continue
to use sunsite to get those docs, because their Cd are ... dated).

It would be nice to hear the opinion of some CD seller, on the idea of a
third Official CD with the docs + the updates.
