Problem is that
./configure --disable-preview
still needs to create and install an AUCTeX without preview-latex:
Emacs-21 on Windows, Carbon and other platforms remains an
installation target, and for a while to come.

While a common AUCTeX/preview-latex README would make sense, the
respective sections would have to appear separately in the
preview-latex and the AUCTeX Texinfo manuals.  It might be an idea,
however, to redundantly place the preview-latex introduction into the
AUCTeX manual as a teaser, but then one would need to make sure that
all cross references go to the full manual.

Quite so.
