That's old-fashioned (or, well, obsolete).

I think (without looking at code or our sub-policy) this should be a
symlink to /usr/share/texmf/doc - and TeX packages should make sure
their documentation is findable both in /usr/share/doc/package (for
Debian Policy) and /usr/share/texmf/doc (for the TeX tools).  

If one package installs it as a directory, might files from other
packages also be installed there?
