No, I don't think so. The idea of /usr/share is that it does not
depend on the architecture. If a README is architecture specific, it
should be called README.<architecture>. It can be included for all
packages, or just for the specific architecture.

Otherwise we end up splitting all directory, and then we could just as
well use a chroot environment :-)
