They don't need them, but having them doesn't hurt.

README.md also may be missing usage information that's in Commentary. I've checked, and it's actually the case with all packages I'm maintaining (except one, out of 6), whether I'm the author or not.

I've mentioned the issues in which is was discussed, feel free to participate.

But if Melpa is going to generate readme.txt from the Commentary, and ELPA - from README.md, I'd hate to be forced to keep (more than a bare minimum of) duplicate information there.

Take company's README.md, for example. It's barren, but Commentary in company.el contains what you'd expect from a description. I'd like to keep things that way there.
