Yes we should. Only the good will is missing. First half of previous 8 months I was ignoring them willingly, because I hoped to have the generated ones prepared for 1.5.
But this task was moved to 1.6 due to new D-I-D attributes

Also you may note - icedtea=web man page is missing (it is jsut copy of current (outdated) javaws.1), itw-settings manpage is missing - and it is HUGE man page, and newly policyeditor is missing.

For javaws x icedtea-web man page see a bug in bugzilla. I have jsut spend 10 minutes by trying to connect to bugzilal without sucess[1]
