I think that the right solution is to not have web apps in our archive
unless they can be made to conform with policy's requirements.  If a web app
isn't going to comply with the FHS, that's fine - but that web app doesn't
need to be in the Debian archive.

If you think it's "butt ugly" for your web app package to behave in a manner
consistent with all the other packages in the archive, we clearly have
different views when it comes to aesthetics.
