As long as they follow the docs on the same Wine snapshot from which
their documentation came, it's good by me. Mixing new docs with old Wine
will do no good ("I have symlinks in my ~/.wine/dosdevices, but Wine is
expecting drive definitions in config"), as well as mixing old docs with
new Wine ("I don't have a config...").

I think most binary packages already provide the docs in a compiled
form. If they do not, they should do so, at least in a wine-doc(s)
package (if that's the distribution way of doing it), or in the main
wine package.
