This change talks about only "extra" documentation that's redundant with
what's already shipped in -dev -- ie, cases where you have man pages and
plain text in -dev then HTML and PDF in -doc.

The case of _primary_ documentation being in -doc is still supposed to be
Recommends, which I agree with (save for the transitional dependency issue).
