How is that a problem in itself? I agree that those files should move to
/usr/share but that may be a problem to get done. I'd suggest putting
them in /usr/share and adding symlinks in /usr/lib. For invidual files
this is too much work though - it could work for directories.

He did it seems. And anyway it is his decision how much work to spend on
