Scott Mead's pg_stat_activity refactoring patch already was forced toward doing something similar for its documentation to be readable (maybe exactly the same as you were thinking, can't tell because my SGML-fu is weak) . I feel doing this for every view in there is inevitable, just a matter of when to bite on the problem. This whole section is barely usable in its current form. I strongly hope the pg_stat_activity patch goes in, which will be close to a compelling event to motivate fixing the rest of them in a similar way. I would advocate leading with that one until it seems right, then adopting the same style of reorg to the rest until they're all converted.
