In my nuget package consuming project, I find the binaries folder contains 18MB of XML. Copied from package binary folders. This is getting rather out of hand!

Is this a packager issue where there really is a better way to add your intellisense XML but people just don't know about it, or is it a design issue where there's not really a well thought out way to place these in your package, or is it a build issue where I am somehow doing something silly?
