I agree that /usr/info should not exist in sarge, not even as a symlink.

But first dpkg should stop symlinking /usr/info to /usr/share/info,
and even remove the symlink it created.

Then, and only then, it will be safe to remove /usr/info from base-files.deb.
(Feel free to reassign the bug back to base-files instead of closing it).

Same for /usr/dict. Please submit a bug against dictionaries-common.
