Actually I think there is something what we are missing in RIPE (copied Marco on this), that will be very useful.

A web page as a kind of "ToC" with all the links to all policies, may be ordered thematically (for example).

There is something close:


But some kind of order in that page, will be very helpful.

    I'm not really sure what you're trying to say here, Owen. Yes, the overall policy is broken out into thematic documents but unless I am very much mistaken, they are updated through a clearly documented process and the history of documents is meticulously tracked. For instance, the PDP was first documented in ripe-350 (https://www.ripe.net/publications/docs/ripe-350) and that page clearly indicates the document that obsoleted it and the overall history of updates. The most recent version of the document (https://www.ripe.net/publications/docs/ripe-710) has a reciprocal history on its page.
    There is also an archive of all policy proposals: https://www.ripe.net/participate/policies/archived-policy-proposals/archive-policy-proposals
    Whether there should be a single manual or thematically distinct documents is, frankly, a matter of taste. What is clearly important is the transparency and documentation of the overall process. If you are aware of gaps or errors in the published history, you should let the RIPE NCC staff know as I expect they'd be keen to address them. 
    Kind regards,
