not really. playground is not maintained so moving stuff from playground to 
unmaintained does not mean anything to me.

I think that makes sense.

playground stuff is supposed to appear and disappear at any time, so attempts 
at documenting them at utils.kde.org is either very time consuming or always 
out of date. I'm not opposed to document playground stuff (quite the contrary), 
but keeping the documentation at a completely different place (other than a 
README within the subdirectory) is likely to run out of sync fairly soon 

How about enforcing (by policy) that each app/dir whatever must contain at 
least a "INFO" or a "README" file that describes wht the purpose is, who is 
working on it and who should be contacted regarding the code?
