Documentation requires even 1 additional dep 2. Thou may not use a USE flag for this 3. Thus, if you want to elide the dependency from *any* merge graph, you must elide it from *all* merge graphs. 4. Thus, you must locally perform some non-standard hackery that will be different for every package to produce these, work out where to put it which is also not standardised, and also prohibit the user from being able to update these themselves via a revision bump, _AND_ you will need to put in place non-standard mechanisms to ensure it gets updated when you update the package, in order for the documentation not to diverge from the sources. There's a lot of "Ummmm, thats bad" in point 4. Hence, counter-proposals are trying to look at a way to achieve points 2 & 3 in your list, without resorting to barbaric torture and inherent fragility. We understand the /achieve, but the mechanism proposed doesn't suit, as stated.
