Debian policy is to make it possible to run with a shared _READ-ONLY_ /usr.
/usr may be coming from a CD, like in Dale's "Drop-in-Debian" product, or
it may be shared via NFS. Obviously, we can't put configuration files on
an un-writable filesystem.
I agree that we haven't yet adequately addressed the shared-filesystem issues.
