It would be utterly wrong.

The problem with doc-base, at least in the state where I last had a look, was
that it was built along the menu structure (be it debian menus or freedesktop or
whatever), and that simply doesn't cover TeX. I think we just used TeX in
tetex-bin in sarge, and I'm not sure whether we register documentation for
texlive at all. And I cannot check, since I'm on holiday, sitting in an Internet
cafe only to transfer pictures from my camera to a memory stick...
