I think removing the official documentation to the wiki would be a bad idea.
Anyone shipping qemu needs documentation that matches the version they're 
actually shipping.  In particular I'd expect significant discrepancies between 
master and the various stable branches, so we need versioned documentation. A 
Wiki seems a poor solution to this.  It's also very useful to be able to ship 
html/pdf versions of the documentation for offline use. I'm not sure how 
feasible this is with wiki based documentation.

I'm happy for things like FAQs, howtos, internals documentation, explanation 
of design choices, etc. to be on the wiki.
