More or less. The less part is when the FHS doesn't really offer a better
alternative (for things like /var/cvs), or things where we're not aiming
for exact compliance (like having symlinks in /usr/doc, rather than not
having anything). That's still independent of Standards-Version, though.

Policy still needs to be changed to say that documentation should be
referenced from /usr/share/doc rather than /usr/doc, iirc.
