But only as an option and/or addition, I hope...

Hmmm, I actually prefer the current situation: If you don't even know if you
should look for a type or a function, you probably have more trouble than
just two indices...  :-]

Again, I like the current situation, it saves you the trouble to look into
simple "collecting modulues" (doing only imports and re-exports) by giving
the user a clue where the documentation is.
