I disagree. Most regular users use frontends like aptitude for package 
management that sort on package name. For those having related packages 
together and sorted on language makes most sense.
Thus: foo-doc-<lang>

For removing you can still egrep on '^foo-doc(-.*)?$'.
For me, this is a specialized use case. Using a package management 
frontend is the normal use-case and should be an important factor in 
package naming.
