An alternatives question

Where should the links in /etc/alternatives point for X applications?
Should they point to /usr/bin/X11/app-name or /usr/X11R6/bin/app-name?
I can find nothing in Debian's policy manual that addresses this issue,
and there currently are at least two open bug reports (20407 and 20409)
on this.

It is my opinion that the alternatives link should be through
/usr/bin/X11; otherwise when X is upgraded to X11R7, all of the
alternatives will break.  However, I would like to hear what others think.
