I wondered the same.
I see that av*res.rc files are mostly boilerplate, in order to make
them consistent it would make sense to generate them through a
generator (so that there is no need to change all the generated files
in case a single part is changed, you only need to tweak the generator
script), similarly to what we did with .pc files.
OTOH I really don't know the complexity/convenience tradeoff in this
