Manual pages and info files can already in several locations (/usr and /usr/local), and all relevant programs must therefore already support multiple locations. Adding /usr/share/man and /usr/share/info should therefore not be a problem. /usr/share/doc may be a slightly problem, since it's always been just one location. However, it isn't used by very many programs (it's not a standard Unix feature), and I think we can fairly easily fix the few that do (dwww, dhelp, and the web servers, I think). Thus, I think we'd be better off without the symlinks.
