My opinion is:
  x.ins x.dtx                -> texmf/source/latex/<package>
  sample.tex,readme,[x.dvi]  -> texmf/doc/latex/<package>

The reason is: people will look for documentation in texmf/doc and
user documentation should be 'ready to preview/print' in .dvi format.
Sample files are most helpful in source there.

The nature of the .ins/.dtx is more source than documentation as others
already pointed out here.
