I'll let Carsten answer questions like that ;-)

The reason for this is the following.

Many of the contributed packages where written by people who were active
in Org-mode for a while and then less so.  Many of these package had no
documentation at all.  So I started a page on WOrg where this
documentation can be added and edited by other users, with quite
some success - now most package do have documentation.

Keeping documentation for a contributed package the the org-repo would be OK, but there would be no mechanism to automatically put the latest version up on on the web.

Changing this would require a volunteer who commits to keep the documentation of contributed packages in a consistent and web-publishable way in the contrib directory.

Well, that's a good question and one I don't have a great answer for.
We could switch the parser to be multi-line based regexp matches but I
suspect the complexity of when to stop those regexps will get rather
harry too!
