Yes it is.

The TeX Policy hasn't been updated in ages :-(

Hmm, let us see the status, searching in Contents-*.gz I find
the following packages:

	auto-multiple-choice-doc-pdf	- needs fixing
	feynmf			- needs fixing
	latex-make		- needs fixing
	mathpartir		- needs fixing
	prerex			- needs fixing
	preview-latex-style	- needs fixing
	luasseq			- needs fixing
	bibtool			- I will do myself
	tipa-doc		- I will do myself
	multex-base		- no idea whether still useful/usable?
	jbibtex-base		- no idea whether still useful/usable?
	jtex-base		- no idea whether still useful/usable?
	ptex-base		- not installable with texlive, so no texdoc

I can make NMUs for all of them, in a blink.

THe most needed one is probably preview-latex-style which needs
anyway some care (I have a private build/update on my machine).

All the best
