First of all.
I work each day with many datasheets of many manufacturers and know how
they must look.

I can confirm there is happened a cropping of last pages (or sometimes
first) with the owner specifications, copyright and other information.

If you want to ascertain in this, you can download the same datasheet
from part manufacturer site and compare with datasheet from the KiCad tree.

I think no one want to host or download the program and a bunch of
doubtful and not required information.

This is the reasons to remove datasheets from KiCad tree.

I agree.

I uploaded to my site a new version of kicad-full-version-2008-08-25-final.tgz, without any component doc,
and (for guys who want them) a separate file doc_components-2008-08-25.tgz
This is i did some time ago.
