Filesystem Hierarchy Standard 2.0

the FHS 2.0, published yesterday, is meant to obsolete the FSSTDN 1.2,
that was used until then.

The FHS homepage is at http://www.pathname.com/fhs/

Some important additions of the new standard includes /usr/share for all
architecture-independant data (like /usr/share/doc, /usr/share/man, etc),
/var/cache, /var/state .....

Is there a plan to upgrade debian's packages so that they are compliant to
this new standard ? Will the final hamm release be FHS 2.0 compliant ?

I didnt see any discussion of this on the debian lists. The only clue
I have now is that Ian Murdock is in the contributors list of the standard
:)   (as well as Ian Jackson and probably a few others)
