Why are you asking here at all?
I saw no answer and you didn't wait long enough to make it possible
to write one.
I don't think it is a good idea to bloat the tree size.
We don't provide a browser with the base system and not everyone
wants the html pages.
We need at least an extra set for the html pages.

Please stop all further changes till we had the time to discuss all
I think you want to bring this onto the 1.5 branch, but we really
should take the time to discuss it and not just wait 4 hours.
