This would be yet another incarnation of caching data from another
branch in Git sources, so please no.

Remember that building online web target is disabled by default, and the
offline version of the web site (in top-build-dir/out-www/offline-root)
will link to current version of the sources only.  Requiring an Internet
connection is sensible if you want to get last version number from both
development and stable branches, and it is only required for doc builds
that enable online documentation output.

Yes, but this would not be so long or hard.

This will be false if we use cross-references that require xref-maps
from the other branch to build the online web site.  Anyway, this bit
would be mainly isolated from the rest of the build system.
