Defending the status quo would appear to be a waste of time, then.
Regardless of the state of messiness, however, I repeat my contention
that the principal project web page is not suitable as top level
documentation anchor for a specific version.  The current document named
"" is the wrong choice, even after fixing all brokenness.

I don't think that an info version of this, the project web page, would
serve a useful purpose, so I think it sensible to completely forget
about "improving" its info aspect (or even its "standalone HTML
documentation" aspect).
