Can you give more details on this one?

See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=411770. An
alternative might be to add this as a snippet to preinst and postrm (to
create/delete this directory).

However, XML and SGML core systems face several issues. They need an
update anyway. And the updated framework will work differenty. I will
therefor delay this request until squeeze has been released.
