FWIW I'm not very enthusiastic about adding another dependency to the
already complex documentation build setup. In addition, your mention of
HTML in particular makes me fear that it is implemented in lilypond-
texi2html.init - making us even more dependent on texi2html which we
should really move away from in favor of plain texi2any...
