if it was not, it is a design bug, IMO.
I see no reason for some information to be shown on one presentation of a
manpage and not on another. compare html man pages available on the net and
compare them to the roff pages you have on your machine - they look the same
and have the same content.

even if I were to agree that these sections do not HAVE to be present in the
html manpages, I would still insist that they should be optionally available
after setting a parameter.

they do not produce Authors and Copyright sections.
note also that the relevant code in docbook-xsl/manpages/info.xsl is quite
elaborate, and I suspect that the corresponding code for html will have to be
just as elaborate to be adequate.
