Of course.  It's unlikely to be very serious "pollution" though, as it
will almost always be only 1 or 2 extra dirs, not many -- and it _is_
long-standing practice, and has the additional benefit of encapsulating
arch-specific hierarchies.

[I've come to depend on the FHS always making the wrong choice though.]

Run away!  Run away!
