A similar solution was discussed some time ago by merging all the /bin and /sbin
directories together (based on the UsrMove from Fedora) but the discussion wasn't
really productive iirc.

Changing only the PATH is also less intrusive compared to merging /{s,}bin and
/usr/{s,}bin. But if there is a consent for it, sure let's merge the directories.
