I think it's fine as it is. If it's not enough for FTP masters, we'll
deal with it once we know what they don't like.

Yes, that's better than patching. :)

Unfortunately no. Listing a file in debian/docs only causes it to get
installed in /usr/share/doc/$package. To register documentation with
doc-base a debian/$package.doc-base is required. It could look something
like this:

Document: famfamfam-silk
Title: FamFamFam "Silk" icon set
Section: Graphics

Format: HTML
Index: /usr/share/doc/famfamfam-silk/readme.html
Files: /usr/share/doc/famfamfam-silk/readme.html

Looks good. One last thing: please change Priority to optional since the
packages that will depend on it are already optional.
