Debian and thus Ubuntu ship the web-frontend of monodoc:

And according to popcon 108 installs of it are counted:

I see the point moving the documentation files to mcs, but why the
tools too? IMHO the monodoc tarball should provide only the
documentation framework, and mono (mcs) would then ship the actual
documentation... Most library packages in debian ship monodoc manual

But of course a circular dependency must be prevented between mono,
xsp and monodoc... one of the reasons the gtk# frontend was moved to
mono-tools and gtk# docs to gtk-sharp-2.0...

Apropros monodoc, in debian we are working on a better way (packaging
wise) to integrate documentation from non-Mono projects in monodoc:
