top-level directories would look after a move from / to /usr. Also, the FHS says nothing about the current approach of overriding files in /usr with files in /etc, which allows packages to stop shipping configuration files in /etc that just consist of the default settings.
Every package which will accept a configuration file in /etc should ship such a file in /etc, even if it contains only comments. In this way, you know the name(s) of the configuration file(s) and the subdirectory in /etc where they belong.
such as /bin, /sbin, /lib, /lib32, /lib64, and so on. However, consolidating all the package-managed bits in /usr would make it entirely sensible to share /usr as a single consistent pile of packaged bits.
And where do you want to put the package information which are currently in /var? They do not belong to /usr.
