What will doc-base do if the sysadmin suddenly change her mind about
having dvi files on her system, if it's going to remove dvi.gz files

It may be better to ask maintainers to tell doc-base if and how dvi's
could be regenerated from installed sources.

I think providing gzipped sources (i.e. (La)TeX(Info)|SGML|... files) in
the packages and letting doc-base decide what to do with them (at install
time or whatever) may be an option.  (Doc-base should be told at least how
to produce raw text files from sources).
