I dislike it. `C-h' should be reserved for Emacs help. Opening a buffer of
jokes or haikus or Zippy quotes or stock quotes or a calendar or ... is not
the same as providing help about Emacs.

Over time, we have needed more and more C-h bindings for real help, and that
is likely to continue. Let's reserve C-h for user help.

We can put the commands to view the various etc/* files on the Super-e
or Hyper-e prefix key.
