Probably not that simple, but if possible, I wish the references to
files in /usr/share/doc/xdm/changelog.Debian.gz were written from the
user's point of view, as it takes a lot of sleuthing to figure out
what files you are talking about.
$ dlocate debian/local/FAQ
$ dlocate FAQ
$ dlocate FAQ|grep -i x
$ dlocate FAQ|grep -i x/
$ dlocate FAQ|grep -i /x
OK, no big deal.

The changelog is there primarily for communication with other
developers, not with the user.

NEWS.Debian, README.Debian, and other such files are generally targeted
at the user.

Closing this request as ill-considered.
