I probably am very atypical; I used to read even system manuals via
info in Emacs, but for the last 10 years or more, I don't.  Another
reason that makes me a bad judge is because I do not use our doc in
any formatted form---"git grep -e ... Documentation/" is easier and
faster.  So, no, I have no opinion.

Thanks.
