removing directories in /usr/share/doc/

is it completely safe to simply 'rm -rf' certain
directories in /usr/share/doc?

i've noticed that /usr/share/doc takes up the largest
disk space in my /usr partition and i hardly ever read
any doc in it, since i can almost always find the doc
somewhere in the net.  and some packages even have the
same doc in different languages taking up even more
space.  it would be nice if apt-get has an option to
not install files destined for /usr/share/doc/<package>.
