More and More directories?

Why is it that in every new LFS, We create MORE and MORE of the same
directories when building LFS. For instance we make man pages twice under 2
directories [/usr/man+/usr/share/man]. Also /usr/share and /usr, the same
directories. Why do we create so many of the same directories? Why not just
use symlinks back to only 1 of them? Making more and more directories just
makes the directory structure more cluttered. Even the FHS doesnt have a
second set of each directory. Cant we keep this excess directory structures
to the minimum in the next lfs?
