The general rule is that failure to find the docstring should not
break commands.  I've fixed a few such cases recently, but if you find
more, please report them.  Even without package.el the file might
disappear or be replaced and that's usually no justification to break the
whole command (e.g. describe-function/variable is still useful even if the
docstring is not found).
