Documentation question

I've volunteered to help get GNU regex documentation into gnulib.
Bruno Haible pointed me here because of one of my suggestions which
potentially affects findutils. I wrote:

"in regexprops-generic.texi, I think that having a plain English
definition of the various syntaxes obscures the fact that each is
defined as a strict combination of features. Would you be happy if I
rewrote the manual as English documentation of each
feature plus a simple list (possibly automatically generated from
regex.h) of which features are present in which syntax?"

I understand from Bruno & Karl Berry that you use a version of
regexprops.texi, so I was wondering what you thought. If you have
strong feelings against my approach, I'd be interested to hear, and if
you agree, I'd be keen to see if I can get a version you can use into
gnulib so that it's not necessary to maintain two copies of the same
