What does it mean? That website and documentation must be generated with the same tool?
Which are the valid reasons for this?

I believe you when you say this. But I am having a hard time finding a
 record of the decision.  I expected to find it in the CG under
Administrative Policies or under Website work. I couldn't find it either
 place.  Can you help me find a pointer to the discussion and/or the
 decision rationale?

Good question, and I still don't have a good answer.  This was
before we started keeping records of any decisions.  The earliest
I found was this:
which didn't spark a whole lot of discussion.  The current website
didn't start to become visible until late 2009.

Well, I cannot help quoting Reinhold enthusiasm about working on texi2html:

 Phew, thank god you are not asking me to write another .init file for
texi2html! I don't have many hairs left, so pulling out my hair is no option


You can imagine the enthusiasm of those coming afterwards...

I had a vague memory of a much more in-depth discussion, but
perhaps that was sometime in 2010 or 2011.  I'll continue to trawl
through the archives to see if there's more info.

I don't think that links to previous discussions are _so_ important.
I'd be curious to know the valid reasons.
