In fact the content of this file
1) is already in the texlive documentation. It was important last year 
to have a specific MacOSX doc at top level because tl7 provided a macos 
support for the first time. I think it could be removed this year, 
provided the notes about frontends and editors are reported in readme.fr

2) is not up to date. With macosX 10.1, sh was emulated by zsh and was 
unable to execute correctly the installation script (why?). With macOSX 
10.2, sh is emulated by bash, and the standard unix install process is 
usable provided one use sudo (the root account is not activated on 
I suppose (no way to test it all my computers use 10.2) that 
README-MAC-OSX and LISEZMOI-MAC-OSX are still usable for 10.1, but not 
for 10.2
