This is precisely why the merging would be optional. To be clear: in
this plan, the documents would be maintaine _separately_ going forward,
but people could (at any time they wanted) create a merged version if
that was more useful to them.

This is how everyone wins - those who want separate documents have them,
and those who wanted merged documents can make them.
