I doubt it.  The symlink doesn't work right now due to the same file
being present on both paths, causing one to be overwritten.  Once that
issue is solved, it should not impact upon keeping /usr separate.  As
long as a feature such as separate /usr is being used, bugs will get
filed when things break.
