Charles, many thanks for doing this.  Apologies for not doing this
myself; it slipped under the radar and got missed.  This all looks

Two minor suggested corrections:

  with the exception of <filename class='directory'>lib/init/rw</filename>.

should be

  with the exception of <filename class='directory'>/lib/init/rw</filename>.

  <filename class='directory'>/var/tmp</filename> exists for this purpose;

really belongs to the previous bullet point.  Maybe just use a semicolon:

         the contents of <filename class='directory'>/tmp</filename> are not
