Yes, and it will also be more readable then, than the current wiki

I'd also like to hear bits from the launchpad team about their
implementation and see whether they agree with everything then.

We still need to at least document the udeb stuff, the images and
other stuff is not relevant to the core format and probably defined
by the d-i team anyway (and installed by-hand).

The udeb stuff is relatively easy to document, as it just adds one
new directory and one new filename for Contents files, so can be
done in about two sentences (and udebs are uploaded by standard
.changes with the rest of the package, and are thus standard).
