We do indeed change it to /usr/share/doc/kde/HTML.  This is so that it
uses the same directory as KDE 3 packages and their documentation can
appear in the KDE 4 khelpcentre.  I think Debian had some conflicting
packages which we didn't so it wasn't suitable to change at the time.

We install a symlink /usr/share/doc/kde4 -> /usr/share/doc/kde so we
don't have to change every package compared to Debian.

Far be it from us to request anything of Debian :)
