Debian is used as a basis by derivative distributions where it is still
emitted. Most derivatives will likely follow Debian (unless you expect
a significant number of them to have resources to fork and maintain
packages for continued split-/usr support).

I think it is reasonable for Debian packages to behave reasonably on
derivatives as well. In this case that means dpkg should not emit a
warning by default on derivatives either.
