Documentation generation is still haphazard, but I don't think any
have been removed.  Often newer versions of packages have been added
and either the documentation for the new version hasn't been generated
yet or the build fails for some reason.  Some new versions fail because
they depend on packages that will be included with GHC 6.8, but have
not yet been released.  An example is binary-0.4, though the docs for
the earlier versions are still there.
