Thus, you may end up with the following situation:

- Documentation for the free fonts, that came with the 
  TeX distribution,  resides in directories immediately
  below doc/fonts.
- Documentation for commercial fonts added by the user 
  will reside one level lower, i.e., in directories
  below doc/fonts/<supplier>.

That's how it looks presently on my PC.  Is this acceptable
in general?  Perhaps yes, under a pragmatic point of view...
