Ah, that makes sense.  I guess what surprised me was not to find
a pointer to the actual entity declaration files at the top level
page http://www.w3.org/2003/entities/ so I assumed the *doc directories
were all there were.

I think I prefer separate directories.  I would expect many people
would want to use a parallel directory structure when snatching a
copy of this, and they may not need/want the doc.  Put another way,
if someone wants all the mathml decls, they should be able to download
a complete directory and have the decls without doc files coming along.

All to say that I don't disagree with your current setup; I might just
suggest some reworking of the file at http://www.w3.org/2003/entities/
so that it's clear that the links under "Entity Sets" aren't, in fact,
to the entity sets, but to documentation.
