The manuals are often packaged separately. You need to install
gnupg-doc, which is i) a suggested package of the gnupg package; and ii)
guaranteed to match the version of gnupg you have installed (how would
your method deal with that - package multiple versions of every manual?)
It shows up in my Emacs just fine (Ubuntu 14.04) with no configuration

AFAICS Stefan takes a very inclusive approach with elpa.gnu.org.
Your specific proposal just doesn't seem to make much sense.
