Why does cvsup drop doc in /usr/doc

Hey team,

I've got an interesting or wierd question.  Why does the cvsup application
drop the docs in /usr/doc instead of /usr/share/doc.

Now I understand that the documentation from the release installs
there, and cvsup keeps track of checked out versions.  But can't
we just drop doc/ into that directory?  This way those which want
to cvsup and update the doc don't get a copy in both places.

Perhaps we do it for the ease of CVS, not sure.  Perhaps someone
could elaborate on this.
