The issue was raised by the udev upstream maintainer along with the udev

FYI, udev 146 ships usb-id and pci-id programs which read
/usr/share/misc/usb.ids and /usr/share/misc/pci.ids .
udev itself does not care about the results of these programs but other
programs which used to use HAL may do, leading to subtle breakage.

There are no obvious workarounds and I have no plan to fight against
this, if you need it to work on systems with a standalone /usr then
feel free to persuade the relevant maintainers to move the files.

I still think /usr standalone should be supported, but I agree with you
that it could be difficult to support it in actual way.

Thus: Are there any technical difficulties to mount usr in the standard
I don't think there are more "special" /usr environments as compared of /
