Suppressing XML files in Release versions

Hello - my apologies for this ignorant question... what is the function of the OpenTK XML files in my C# Release directory? Does it hurt to remove them? Is it possible to automatically suppress their generation? If so, how would I do that? Thank you!

I guess they are for Intellisense to show API help. You may generate your own help documentation too (eg. via Sandcastle)

Indeed, these xml files contain the documentation that shows up in Visual Studio (or MonoDevelop, etc). You do not need to distribute them to end-users, they are only useful during development.
