What needs removal? The Dictionary or the manual? In an ycase, /doc/ is
probably sub-optimal as it is a list of available documentation in Debian,
what I believe you miss is something like "New to Debian?" that points people
to documentation they should read first, this includes: the installation
manual, the FAQ and the Debian Reference.

Maybe the support page (www.debian.org/support) should list these instead
of refering people to /doc/ directly. 

Of course, changing the doc index so that the obsolete or not up-to-date
documentation is removed (or marked as such) might help too.
