I have looked into this. Hopefully I got it right somehow:

For aptitude it seems the txt variant has to be removed from the webwml, 
since the aptitude-doc package does only contain html variants of the guide.

For apt-doc there are probably changes required in the package apt-doc, to get
a clean solution.
The APT User's Guide has the string "apt-guide" as identifier for building
the Debian website, which means the links for the text variant point to
../apt-guide/apt-guide.de.txt for German as example.
But the package does not contain such file ../apt-guide-... file, only
../guide-... files (without the apt- ).
Are there changings in the package needed to get that running?
Or is there some mechanism, that extracts the files out of the package
and renames it according to specific rules, before it gets loaded to the
Debian webserver?
