You're missing the part where the maintainer is, by the policy, required to, for every bump: 1. Ensure the generated documentation is extracted from the build 2. Packaged into a tarball somewhere 3. Uploaded to a server that can host that tarball 4. Update the package to use that. Failure to do this will mean you're shipping out-dated documentation to the user. This series of back-flips is just not practical at present, and introduces more steps where mistakes can break the ebuild.
