There is a thread on gnu.misc.discuss (developers v packagers) which seems to
heading strongly towards the opinion that some Debian packagers are causing
confusion by tweaking more than what is needed to fit the Debian directory
structure, which implies it is common to do much more than this.

The fundamental problem here tends to be that it is not the Debian packgers
who get the support questions, but the original developers who try and answer
in the context of the original distributed defaults unless the user tells them

Red Hat contributed RPMs tend to be worse in this respect.

E.g. these three are not needed for the Debian package, and it would
probably be desirable to encourage Debian to restore them to the defaults
from the standard source distribution.
