Sadly not. While I agree that /var/lib is the wrong location and /srv is
more correct, we cannot use /srv as a distribution, while every site
user is allowed to use /srv for that.

That's the purpose of /srv, after all.

However, we, as distribution are not allowed by means of FHS to assume
any directory layout, or sub-directory structure below /srv ("Therefore,
no program should rely on a specific subdirectory structure of /srv
existing or data necessarily being stored in /srv. However /srv should
always exist on FHS compliant systems and should be used as the default
location for such data") [1].

If you find some better directory than /var/lib (or, similarly, for
/var/www) let me know. See also [2]. I'm still seeking one.
