There is no need to create another standard, FHS is being continued in
the LSB project at linuxfoundation.org / freestandards.org. FHS was
the starting point for LSB.
Even if the LSB project has been criticized by the Debian project,
this seems to become the "the facto" file hierarchy standard for
Linux. It is not perfect, but is being adopted by the majority of
Linux distros.
