excuse me? I don't like this solution, or are you going to do all the
work in Debian to adapt to this proposal?

upstream tarball, rename it in numpy-doc, build only the doc, ship it
where it better fits for ubuntu policies, work done & no-one gets hurt

ehm... you're speaking too fast here and without involving maintainers it seems.
