I'm not sure if everyone interested is subscribed to the texdoc list. OTOH, it
doesn't seem appropriate to impose lengthy discussions about texdoc to texlive@
readers, so I agree we should switch to texdoc@ only (just cc-ing this last
message to texlive@ so that interested people can follow). Reply-to set
accordingly (please be careful if using reply-to-all or to-list).

The discussion about catalogue data and how texdoc is using it, should be using
it now, and could/should use it in the future is very interesting, unfortunately
I have to time to think and write an appropriately detailed reply right now,
hopefully tomorrow or at most in a few days.

Robin, don't hurry to change things in the catalogue and/or on ctan, I don't
think changes are needed right now (at least as far as texdoc is concerned).
