I considered that, but this seems more of an advocacy problem
with a technical solution. I thought the wider advocacy audience
might have some ideas about it.

I considered that, but I would not want to completely eliminate the
old docs from Google searching. There's always a chance something useful is
there. However, since 99.9% of generic non-version specific searches should
*not* hit those pages, it's best to stick those on the "e" in
Goooooooooooooooooooooooogle. :)
