Step (2) and (6b) of this address the other files.  The top of
UPGRADING.mysql even tells you to start there.  A bug in the POD -> html
(now fixed) causes it to not show up in the website, but it's in the
shipped docs/UPGRADING.mysql in the source tarball.

We recommend doing the 'make upgrade-database' steps before running the
various cleanups in docs/UPGRADING-*

Patches accepted of updates that you think would clarify the issue.
