And how would we get a definitive list of "xxx" for each of the many
documents "yyyyy" (in your case xxx=label, yyyyy=latex2e)?
Should that be parsed from the PDF? From the .sty files? From the .dtx
The only reasonable way would be that someone sits down and compiles a
list by hand, but it will be very biased I guess.

So do you propose this *only* for the latex manual? That should be
doable by manually tweaking the texconf.cnf files by adding some alias
Furthermore, I guess you mean
LaTeX2e: An unofficial reference manual
