Thanks fo taking this issue forward. It would increase the
archive much because html and text files compress extremely
well. The logical place for the documentation, is the "doc"
package that already includes FAQ.

Perhaps you meant to separate:

- pure source (*.sgml):  *-doc-source.tar.gz
- generated files: *-doc-generated.tar.gz
