If we keep these documents private then I would say .qdoc vs .md is a bikeshed 
and whoever is doing the hard work of writing and maintaining it should 

But for public distribution I don't think it's fine.

If I recommend the Qt coding style to a customer, he'll come back and say "How 
do I open this?". Afaik, you can't just point your browser to it and open it 
while offline, you have to go to a gitweb site and view it there, otherwise no 
pretty formatting.
