The name 'LIB' contains a dangerous suggestion, because:
/usr/lib/perl -> /usr/lib/perl
/usr/lib/dict -> /usr/share/dict
/usr/lib/<datafile> -> /usr/share/lib/<datafile>
better call it DAT.
/usr/share/lib is not FHS conformant, architecture independant data
either goes in /usr/share/<package> or a single data file can be
placed in /usr/share/misc.
btw: any suggestions about the FHS preferred /var/lib -> /var/state ?
Don't use /var/state, it's not in FHS 2.1.
