AFAIK they are not meant to be read by humans, but they can be used by dpkg
for generating more accurate library dependencies. Anyway, they can be 
demangled using c++filt(1), if needed.

Also, there is the no-symbols-control-file lintian tag. It's just whishlist
severity, but IMHO it's nice to keep lintian as silent as possible :)
