Which directories are you referring to? Concrete examples, please!
The base facility (telling dpkg not to install into certain
hierarchies) could be used by a more user-friendly frontend (i.e. one
you tell which languages you're interested in) which would forbid the
necessary directories automatically.

If you put french stuff under /usr/share/doc/fr/ or
/usr/share/info/fr/ this works.
