I do not see a great problem if some particular package is not
included into TL as long as this package is maintained on CTAN in the
standard form AND in tds. The good question is "if documentation comes
without source, should be it on CTAN?". If I am not mistaken on of the
answers is "NO" and this I find problematic as we are sure that CTAN
will exist forever (at least long enough) but we cannot be that sure
about acrotex.net.
