Oh, the reason I'm asking for this feature: I was discussing automated documentation testing with someone on IRC. There's really no way for software to gauge a human's ability to understand and use documentation. So there'd need to be a way for humans to pass/fail the documentation manually. AnnoCPAN could become a Mechanical Turk-Like framework for humans to pass/fail documentation. A +/- button would let people pass or fail the documentation one paragraph at a time. Distribution and module summary reports would round out the feature. Authors could quickly find hot spots in their documentation. Maybe later an API could let authors write a TAP test to fail a module if it has outstanding documentation problems. It would need to be clever about ignoring failures for paragraphs that have changed.
