Misunderstanding?  Step (3b) is one step of a reordered series.  Let me
repeat the order I proposed:

1. Fix existing issues in QAPI schema comments

2. Generate documentation from it (not a replacement for
   qmp-commands.txt, yet)

3. Merge qmp-commands.txt into QAPI schema comments, step by step

   (a) If you only update the QAPI schema comments, qmp-commands.txt
   stays intact throughout this work.

   (b) If you delete qmp-commands.txt section as you cover them in the
   QAPI schema, command documentation regresses temporarily.  Tolerable,
   but needs to be explained in commit messages.  Your choice.

4. Generated documentation now contains everything qmp-commands.txt
   contains; delete qmp-commands.txt

This way, the first part contains everything that's really interesting:
step 1, 2 and some of 3a or 3b, depending on which alternative you pick.
The remaining parts are just more of 3a or 3b, plus the trivial step 4
in the last one.

I proposed this to get the interesting review of step 2 out of the way
early, and before we tire ourselves out on the not-so-interesting but
necessary review of step 3.
