I just reported #374426, a wishlist bug against debhelper asking for a
new option --prefer-from-docs-files which changes dh_installdocs's
behaviour that it now installs the files specified in a package.docs
file in preference over the ones specified on command line.
If this new option were implemented in dh_installdocs fixing this bug
(#369268) would be fairly easy: Just call dh_installdocs with this new
option. I attached a patch for debhelper.mk doing this.
Note: This patch is only usable if the patch from #374426 has been
applied to debhelper previously.
I wrote in #374426 initial bug report:

So, it would be nice if you would comment on this new bug report.
