Just my 2 cents:  I suggest that we use "see" wherever possible.  I
don't care about KDE defaults, but "see" is the Debian way to say "give
me the viewer for this file type that is configured on this system".

I'm not familiar with the current version of texdoc, so I cannot comment
whether this is easy or not.  Wasn't there a configuration file, which
also defines viewer applications?
