copyright and NEWS.Debian under /var/lib/dpkg? Bad idea I think. These
files are important documentation for the user, and as such their place
is under /usr/share/doc.

If such a move is done, their should at least be symlinks so that these
files are still available where users will look for documentation, that
is under /usr/share/doc.
