personally, beyond the aesthetically displeasing name, i'm really
skeptical that this will accomplish anything useful.

* most apps require extra config and splitting out of stuff into other
  directories for fhs compliance anyway, thus requiring some level of
  webserver configuration, meaning this adds no benefit (beyond 1 line
  fewer in the server config).
* this encourages a "working in unconfigured state" for packages, which
  seems very sketchy wrt security (similarly, to apps dropping random
  publically executable scripts in /usr/lib/cgi-bin.

tbh this seems closer to the "solution looking for a problem" rather than
the other way around.
