While that's true, there is now a framework for getting changes made to the
FHS again - unlike before when the only three editors with commit access
were all AWOL.  The FHS and the guarantees it provides about what users can

diverge from the FHS on something as major as the existence of /sbin, that's
a conversation we should be having in the FHS WG first before implementing
