I think the entire point of contrib is that it's "not ready for prime
time" code, and one of the ways in which it's likely to be not ready
is not having sgml-format documentation.

If someone wants to step up and do the work to convert the existing
contrib doc files to sgml, I certainly won't stand in the way --- but
I'm not prepared to remove contrib entries just because they don't have
sgml-format docs.
