Bug#767839: debian-policy: Linking documentation of arch:any package to arch:all

Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist

Please explicitly state in the Policy if linking
/usr/share/doc/arch:any_package to ../arch:all_package 
(where arch:any_package and arch:all_package come 
from the same source package)  is allowed or not.

In other words: please specify if ${source:Version} is 
sufficient for dependency between such packages, 
or if ${binary:Version} (which breaks binNMUs) needs 
to be used instead.

See the following bugs for background:

In my opinion, as I wrote in #766711, footnote [116] allows such
linking, as it seems to refer to source version of a package.
