You can clean it up. The only important part is that in some (newer?) versions 
of make or automake, the doc_DATA files can automatically be packages (but I 
think this required a dist_doc_DATA variable or similar), whereas on some 
other (older?) versions those would not get packaged. Eventually, only 
EXTRA_DIST files are for sure always packaged.
