You really do not understand that I'm working on distribution packges.
On builng such resources you are not using web browser and you care first
about minimal size of installed resources.

If gettext command is used for example by grub fact that out of source tree is
possible to build and install second copy of all documentation in html is
Do you see my point?
I can underdsstand that as maintainer you may be interested to publish whole
html documentation in come content of the project web server.
