No, in LTSP the one root filesystem image is static data shared between
all clients of a given arch and can't be regenerated except by
reinstalling LTSP: thus it belongs in /usr not /var.  Also it is
"architecture independent" from a Debian packaging perspective as the
architecture of the clients need not match the architecture of the file
server; it would make sense to have an i386 LTSP root fs stored on a
Sparc NFS server, for instance.  Thus /usr/share is the correct

Possibly /var/tmp or /var/lib would also be an option?  Not sure which
