I think here's a misunderstanding. The "install" in the mail to which
you replied means the "install" step of portage, not the "merge" step.
Portage should not stop any ebuild from putting stuff into ${D}/whatever,
but it can remove the doumentation directories before doing the "merge"
step which moves it to the place your are talking about.

"not installing" implies this. But since you seem to mean "not merging",
I don't think there's a problem with that.
