man page symlinks on symlinked binary



There was a discussion earlier today on the fedora-list related with the fact that cdrecord doesn't have a man page. The person who made the question didn't know that cdrecord is just a symlink to wodim, so that man wodim would have given the man page he was looking for.

The thing is that the discussion started flipping towards why, if there is a binary symlink, there isn't a man page symlink? This could, in the case of cdrecord and wodim, or mkisofs and genisofs, end in bugtrack tickets for those packages, but I am more interested in a general solution, for all packages that have binary symlinks.

So, shouldn't there be something in respect of this issue in the packaging policy?
