Yep. In fact that's a direct transmission from the catalogue:
amslatexdoc-vietnamese.xml contains <texlive location='amsldoc-vn'/>
So all kudos go to Robin and other catalogue maintainers.

Well, this one was automagically found by matching file names and then
I didn't spot any problem after a quick look. Now I see that beebe in
texlive contains 9 .bib files (which triggered matching) from biblio
package on ctan (by Nelson H. F. Beebe) plus 44 .bst files from almost
30 other packages by various authors. Probably it's better to leave it
without mapping to any ctan package? If so then please remove
catalogue line from beebe.tlpsrc.

Sure, there is considerable amount of fonts there (which I don't feel
comfortable to touch at all): albertus, antiqua, atqolive, etc.; parts
of some bigger packages, e.g., c90, cjkutils, garuda-c90, and
norasi-c90 from cjk and cyrplain from t2; or united packages, e.g.,
mflogo, containing mflogo and mflogo-font.
