I count 27 packages in bo using /usr/share and only one using

Therefore my comment is to keep /usr/share, but to roll back to
/usr/lib. (although libexec is not forbitten by fsstnd, AFAIK)

For /usr/local/share, just follow new policy in building dirs under
/usr/local (mkdir them in postinst ignoring errors, if I remember well).
