Not at all, for there are some packages which ship both /bin/foo and
symlink /usr/bin/foo to it; those would be broken.
Is a nice concept. In other OS, like Plan9, there are only one folder
with the binary files (/bin), the other folders (/usr/bin, /sbin, ...
and ~/bin) are "binded" to /bin.
In Windows 7 this concept is used in "My Documents", "My Music",...
where multiple folders are showed together in other folder. When you
write to the folder, one is the default folder for writing.
In Linux > 2.4, "mount -t bind" is near of this idea.
