Packages must not disable installing manpages via USE flags
a. USE flags that disable building both a program and its manpage
I think it seems an implicit goal that this policy should apply to programs and their manpages?
In that case, I would suggest to at least limit this policy to man section 1 and 8. As mattst88 explained in another post, X.org developer documentation in man pages is not interesting for non-developers, and does usually not describe the functions of a program.
