The point isn't that everybody should be using a readonly /usr.  The
point is that some people would like to, they should be expected to be
aware of the advantages and disadvantages, and their configuration
supported by the packaging system if possible.

This is not a proposal to force all Debian users to have a readonly
/usr.  Yeesh.  It's a feature request on the part of a minority of users
who do.
