Comment (by simonmic):

 I like this. How about:

   general: README, AUTHORS, releasenotes
   user: userguide.md, tool.1
   admin: toolconfig.5
   developer: Changelog, DEVGUIDE.rst

 using target audience as major category. .1 and .5 are man pages in the
 traditional nroff format. To generate man pages from some other format,
 augment this basic scheme (add a tool.1: tool.md or some such..), but that
 seems like a nice-to-have.
