It's not a case of being bothered (actually look at my Post Teaser
plugin -- it has one), it's a case of whether it's really very effective
to maintain two different formats of a document which say exactly the
same thing. I'd perhaps agree more if I could actually understand the
benefit these readmes have over a wiki page and the commenty tag things
every single plugin has.
