That was years ago.  And, now that we are at this point, we should do it
right, and not following the recommendation given by some group of people long
ago that didn't forsee this problem.

Er, no.

Having a half-empty /usr/share/doc is not a problem, because /usr/doc
contained links to the new location.

/usr/share/doc was a new feature.  There was no need to maintain links from
/usr/share/doc to /usr/doc.

/usr/doc is an old feature.  We need to maintain it's use, and not have a
window were it's functionality is limited.
