Sure, but please a few days.

No problem if you install ocaml-doc without ocaml, because the package
ocaml-doc install by itself files in /usr/share/doc/ocaml/, so when you
install ocaml-doc that directory will be created even if ocaml package
is not installed.
Thus the dir /usr/share/doc/ocaml contains a mixture of files: part of
them are owned by the ocaml package (e.g. the meta informations about
ocaml package like copyright file or README.Debian), part of them are
owned by the ocaml-doc package (i.e. the real documentation).
Also /usr/share/doc/ocaml-doc exists and will contains meta informations
about the ocaml-doc package (e.g. the meta informations about the
ocaml-doc package as above).

You can also add the symlink if you want but I think it isn't needed nor
usefule. If you really want you can add a note in the README.Debian of
both package saying where the documentation resides. BTW the standard is
that /usr/share/doc/ocaml should contain the ocaml documentation so no
one should look for it in /usr/share/doc/ocaml-doc.

As an example have a look at the packages apache and apache-doc.
