After some thought and discussion, I really think we should shelve the 
debate about the storage method of this information.

Right now, I think we should focus on the format of the data, and the 
Asterisk code that makes use of it.  We can leave the mechanics related 
to storage and distribution as an implementation detail to be decided 
upon before merging.

That decision really shouldn't affect all of the conversions of existing 
documentation, and most of the Asterisk code that uses it, which are the 
most important parts of this project.
