Policy 3.0.0 and /usr/X11R6/man ?

I am a little bit confused if /usr/X11R6/man is still conforming to
policy 3.0.0.

According to section 5.8, /usr/X11R6/bin seems to be the right place
to put programs "for the X Windows System". There is no word about
where to place the according man pages in this section.

Section 6.1 says: "You must install manual pages (...) in appropriate
places under `/usr/share/man'."

(Newest) potato lintian reports an error if a man page for a program
in /usr/X11R6/bin is in /usr/share/man, however intian may be wrong.

So what is the right thing to do?
