/usr/lib vs /usr/libexec

It seems that Red Hat has a lot of programs under /usr/libexec that are 
under /usr/lib in Debian.  One example is /usr/lib/postfix 
vs /usr/libexec/postfix.

It seems to me that /usr/libexec is a better name for such things, and having 
the same directory names used across distributions provides real benefits 
(copying config files and binaries from other distributions when a bug stops 
a server working and it's REALLY important to get it fixed fast).

Should we change some of these to /usr/libexec?
