I certainly might!

Cabal supports package-version macros, and haddock installs both

That's good to know. And I just found the documentation:

This sounds like it only works with package dependencies. Does it also work
with Haddock as a processing tool?

Still, you might find something useful in the discussion for this ticket:

Thanks for the tip.
