Yes, at the ACAA site (http://www.ada-auth.org/).

I'd certainly encourage that. The generator program could easily be modified
to produce some other output format (just create a new "output object"). But
I'd suggest using the existing HTML and/or PDF if possible. (Avoids making
new, possibly different versions of the text.)

Sounds good to me.
