Well, basically maintainers are encouraged to have the documentation in
/usr/share/doc in any newly uploaded package.  It's up to the maintainers
to decide when they are updating the packages.  Also, some packages that
probably won't have any updates to them (e.g., compatibility packages) are
likely to keep their documentation in /usr/doc (I don't know what the
policy is on those).
