Well, all the usual reasons.  It will be improving over time,
and it makes much more sense to keep the documntation about
a system within the repository for that system.  And rather
than have two copies, one of which will get out of sync,
I feel it makes more sense to relocate the DTC technical
descriptions to the DTC repository where it belongs.

And speaking of which, I will also be removing the already extant
and already way out of data copy of the booting-without-of.txt
from the DTC repo as well.

If a small summary of say, DTC command line usage is left in
b-w-o.txt as a Quick Ref, I'm fine with that, of course.
