Something along these lines sounds like a good idea to me. 

It leads me to another question though: does monodoc have a maintainer
of sorts? There are a few features and bugs that would be nice to
address, and I hope no one will be offended if I say that the code could
use a little bit of prettifying. I'd like to pitch in but there doesn't
really seem to be a go-to person for patches, though.
