/usr to / does not allow any new features, while / to /usr allows
implementing new features like creating OS snapshots at file system
level (something which Fedora already supports) or a real complete OS
image (to be NFS-shared, replicated, etc).

look at fstab. I see no compelling reasons to create standalone file
systems for the other directories, which are small and static.
