Probably not - it's simply too much work to do that:  Find out a current
working address of upstream, telling them why they should put
documentation on CTAN, often finding that there's no upstream any

We generally rely on the CTAN people to do that.  Note that there are
three levels of "upstream" for TeXLive:  The TeXLive developers who take
their TeX input files from CTAN, the CTAN people who set policies for
package authors and their uploads, and those upstream package authors
