Ah, oh well, I thought I saw /com mentioned here along with /libexec.
I have read a couple of hundred emails on this topic in the last 36 hours,
and that one has somewhat gotten lost in the shuffle.  Also, I was mainly
having Hurd specific top level directories in mind, which are /hurd and
/servers, not directories that also can be applicable to BSD or GNU/Linux.

This is already the case.  We have heard several times yesterday here on
this list that the GNU coding standard does not apply to Debian GNU/Linux.

The name in the annex probably can be clarified, but I don't see your
conclusions as inevitable.
