That's probably false, as this elisp has an intimate relationship with
a particular binary (it's dumped into it). Note that (at least on my
Gentoo system) Python library code is in /usr/share/python$VERSION.
The same logic applies to XEmacs.
I agree that the files that are specific to an XEmacs version can go into
/usr/lib/xemacs-$VERSION, but I was actually referring to the package
hierarchy. The default for this is also to put all these packages into
/usr/lib, but these should really go to /usr/share. Apologies for not
making the distinction between the packages and the list files more clear.
