Well, I think faq.html would be even more important to distribute, then.
But there are probably lots of such files. Realistically, though, we
should just direct people to the live web URLs, and not ship 'www'.
After all, who in their right mind would consult a document on their
local disk when a possible more-up-to-date one were available online?

+1 on removing the www/ subdir from dists, and fixing up any references
that need to be fixed up therefrom.
