Well, then we think alike. A package that installed both /usr/bin/foo and
/bin/foo would have to be perverse, in my opinion. Both are searched by
default, so one is as good as the other, except when /usr is not mounted.
Recall now that all of this was prompted by a package that did just that.
So go figure.
