yes, we must do that.

You all right: symlinks from /usr/share/* to /usr/* are not the right way.
Someone else make a proposel of symlinks in the other way:

New man-pages, info-files and doc/files* go to /usr/share/* and the packages
make symlinks in /usr/* to this files.
In one package we make a program for the sysadmin to check /usr/doc /usr/man
and /usr/info. If the programm find a dir only with symlinks in the
/usr/share/*-hierarchy, then it remove all symlinks in this dir and make one
symlink from this dir to the dir in /usr/share.

I think this is the right way. Or, what is wrong?
