the format of the official documents is something best left for the
GDP to discuss. Whenever the discussion about moving the official docs
to wiki format was raised in the past, the GDP was very clear about
not wanting to go down that route. With time, that position might
change, but in any case that's a discussion that should be held within
the GDP project.
