Because you are sharing /usr/share and not /usr ?

FHS 2.3:
/usr/share : Architecture-independent data

One filer to rule all the architectures. Essentially, the same reason we
make -data packages to begin with. If you have a mixed environment (x86,
amd64, sparc, ppc) then you can have one /usr/share for all of them.
