OK, but if it's finally version-agnostic the ntp sub-directory should
not be installed into a version-dependent tree.

How about giving this option a number argument?  Besides, the --help says:

   -w no  wide           enable wide display of addresses

Well, I'm not giving it the -w / --wide option and it still uses a wide
display for the peers.  It doesn't use wide display for the rv and cv
commands no matter the option.  So I'd think it's actually ignoring the
option at the moment.
