No.  We came to the conclusion that:

1) What gets added to the FHS is not a Debian decision, 
2) Debian released architectures need to conform to FHS, and
3) Ports still being worked on don't need to treat (2) as their top
   priority, especially when they expect FHS will change in relevant
   ways before the port is released.
