Yes please. (I'll bounce MH-E bug reports to the list anyway.)

In Debian, /usr/share/pixmaps is the correct location for image
files, so you should put images under /usr/share/pixmaps/mh-e/ and
populate /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/etc/images/mh-e with symlinks (see
how gnus does it).
As for 'etc/images' vs 'etc/images/mh-e', I think having the
subdirectory is cleaner. It avoids theoretical issues with two packages
providing the same file, etc.
