I didn't realize that the release manager could decide to ignore the
Social Contract if it is inconvenient.  A more appropriate way to fix
it would be to simply eliminate the documentation.  People could then
file bugs complaining about the lack of documentation even in
non-free, and these bugs may or may not hold up the release.
