I think you misunderstood, Russ is saying that /sys is the sysadmin's
domain and nothing should be installed there by Debian packages.
That isn't incompatible with Luke's opinion that databases should be
stored in /srv rather than /var/lib/. I agree with that and think the
sysadmin should decide where they want to store system data (inc
databases, websites, ftp upload directories, cvs repositories, etc).
