Don't think so..

Every package must have at least /u/s/d/$p/copyright; it is valid if
/u/s/d/$p is a symlink to some other package.  From policy 12.3:

| `/usr/share/doc/<package>' may be a symbolic link to another directory
| in `/usr/share/doc' only if the two packages both come from the same
| source and the first package Depends on the second.[2]

Although I don't know why you would do this, if you decide to use
maintscripts to create that symlink, be sure to handle the case that
/u/s/d/$p doesn't exist (because the local admin is allowed to rm -fr

Clear skies,
