Well, let's step back and think about this.  Who is the audience for
these documents?  That will tell us a lot about where they should really
be.  

What I would prefer to avoid is the status quo where *everything* is in
the top-level directory, and where documents are organized for the
convenience of their maintainers rather than of their readers.  But
sometimes I feel like I'm alone in that desire...:)

Thanks,
