In general, my idea was to have a core-maintained monodoc.xml, where we
can choose where things go.

For example, today things are rooted at /Mono Documentation;  But in
the future, they will likely be in /Mono Documentation/Reference/Class
Libraries, and then, I might want to merge all of those in "Linux

So I rather not encourage people to add nodes to this file, but instead
maintain it centrally.
