I would expect a separate /usr to be less common now than it once was. In
fact, Fedora recently decided to make it impossible by moving the entire
system into /usr, a controversial decision that may be followed by other
distributions (though probably not by debian for a long time, if ever, because
there are likely to be some Debian users who really need/want a separate /usr
and that will be sufficient to ensure it doesn't happen).
