Right offhand I can think of /usr/lib/trn.*/.+, which perhaps you
haven't noticed since it's in non-free. I'm sure there are others.
/usr/lib and /usr/share are perfectly legitimate places to put private
executables; I'm not sure I like the notion of complicating the
namespace further just because some people initially assume they only
contain non-executable data and libraries.
