It's not particularly fair, but we should discuss it.  Either we
consistently attribute every section or chapter, or we don't do it.  I
could probably put names on most chapters from memory and I wouldn't mind
it, but it does seem like an unusual thing to have names on only a few
sections.  Maybe it would be a good compromise to record significant
documentation work in the release notes with the usual attribution?
