note that it was don's request that his packages be removed.  the common
case is no more than: if the documentation source is not available, the
documentation doesn't make it to ctan.

if you don't want your packages included under those terms, it's _your_
decision to say so -- imo, a "dark hint" like the above should _not_ be
sufficient for removing packages from tex live.

personally, i value your many inputs, and would feel sorry if any part
of them were unnecessarily blocked or removed.
