Hi Vladimir,

That look like a reasonable idea but we would have to change the way
we do things before doing that. We made the current decision some
time ago and it may be time to revisit it.
It is compulsory now because it installs the help system for sage.
The html and/or pdf files are just icing on the cake and you don't
have to install them. The html come in handy with the notebook however,
since you can access it directly.

If you don't install sage-doc you cannot ask sage for help on any
command using "?". For example if you do:
integrate?
you will get help on the syntax and some example. I think this is
a fundamental part of sage. If you disagree I am ready to hear about your
argument.

Francois
