How about moving /etc into /home? How about moving /home
into /usr? How about deleting all the HDD content, and switching
to vfat by default? Or getting rid of unix rights (too complicated?)?

Seriously, please stop... My filesystem is ok the way it is, I don't
want it to change so much that absolutely every package will
be impacted. For the above, it's fixed by having a separate
partition for /var/lib (which I often do).
