Isn't this thing has something to do with the /usr/doc -> /usr/share/doc
transition? IIRC, /usr/doc is still the official storage place for
potato but we must prepare the transition for woody by storing all new
documentation into /usr/share/doc and symlinked them into /usr/doc.

A similar arguments can be stated for info files: The official directory
for potato is /usr/info, but new info files should put themself into
/usr/share/info and let install-info referenced them into the /usr/info/dir.
One time in the future of woody, an update for install-info will appear
will upgrade everything from /usr/info/dir into /usr/share/info/dir and will
update everything after that in /usr/share/info/dir.

Huh, well, not sure is clear since English is not my first language. Hope
this help.
