Nothing may depend on /usr/share/doc so nothing should break if that
is removed. As for the user following links from e.g. a manpage that
is then the local admins problem, his fault for filtering.

The rest is only relevant for compiling stuff. If you don't need that
then moving libs to lib64 or lib32 is fine. It is the admins problem
