Right, but these changes aren't meant for our benefit.  They are for
users who get cleaner web accessible Linux kernel docs.  Seems the
decision has been made that the users' benefit, and broader
modernization of Linux docs, outweighs the inconvenience for engineers
who maintain the content of said documentation.

This kind of thing happens a lot these days: pile on engineers, they can
take it :/
