[XeTeX] XeTeX doc and TeX Live 2007

Regarding the documentation of XeTeX, such as the archive  
XeTeX_doc.zip from the XeTeX download page, I can see no trace of it  
in TeXLive, now that XeTeX has been incorporated into TeX Live 2007  
(to be released shortly).

On the Mac, in either gwTeX installed via i-Installer or TeXLive-2007  
(full) installed via MacTeX, I suppose the docs (in particular XeTeX- 
notes.pdf) would live in texmf/doc/xetex. But I couldn't find it in  
any of the various texmf trees of each distribution.

Does this mean the existing doc is being considered too preliminary,  
or outdated, for TeX Live inclusion? Or has it simply been forgotten?  
It would be a bit unfortunate, as the various LaTeX packages based on  
XeTeX (like fontspec) have already their docs in TeX Live.
