One reason could be that you could easily point a webserver's document
root to that single /usr/pkg/share/doc/html directory to serve up
documentation for various applications. (But, I don't know of any security
impact of these docs for the local system or end-users, especially when I
hear there are many ways to compromise Windows systems through MSIE.)
