Indeed I didn't, even though (as I've mentioned on d-d) I consider any
system installed with such layout completely broken from dpkg's PoV. I
could not be bothered filing this with an RC severity, given that AFAIR
one of the Release Team members uploaded the breaking change, and didn't
(and still do not) have the energy or will to get into such an argument
over severities and similar.
I do still consider this pretty much unsupported from dpkg's PoV though…
