doc-base is hugely unloved; bug mass-filing needed?

After years and years of waiting for packages to register their
documents with doc-base, and filing individual bugs with some (not all
-- I am not jidani, LOL) of those that didn't register, I am quite

 [41]matica:doc$ pwd
 [42]matica:doc$ find -L . -name "*.html" -o -name "*.htm" \
-o -name "*.pdf" -o -name "*.pdf.gz" | cut -d/ -f2 | sort | uniq | wc -l
 [43]matica:doc$ find -L . -name "*.html" -o -name "*.htm" \
-o -name "*.pdf" -o -name "*.pdf.gz" | cut -d/ -f2 | sort |\
 uniq | while read p ; do if ! [ -e "/usr/share/doc-base/$p" ] ;\
 then echo "$p" ; fi ; done | wc -l

So, out of 273 doc-containing packages on this system, just 70 bothered.
I feel a strong urge to put the commands in a script that will auto-file
a bug against any package in the output of the last command.  How do
maintainers feel about that?
