I think there are two options:
1. provide both manual pages and make them alternatives' slave links
2. remove the respective file from lam-dev, add missing files to mpi-doc,
and make mpi-doc a reference to MPI spec.
The case was to maintain 'mpi-doc' as a manual page for all
MPI references, and thus the package name 'mpi-doc', and not 'mpich-doc',
and IIRC former Debian maintainer of mpich (me) chose the option 2;
which requires maintenance and coordination between lam and mpich packages.
