I think that they should either stay as is or have doc included with packages only, with no possibilit to exclude it. Basically I view the existence of any particular option as a bug (but the options framework I do not view that way), because options don't work for binary packages. I would ask: how much hassle is it to have doc packages how many users want the doc packages how many actively don't want docs what extra dependencies would be added to a typical install? To a minimal use texlive install? how much space do the docs take?
