What?  The people who make a distribution (in this case) are Debian,
and Debian doesn't get to create top-level directories; which everyone

Moreover, Debian has already decided that it *won't* create top-level
directories beyond the FHS as long as there are "other places" to put
the same things, so adding a "you can make new top level directories"
sentence to FHS wouldn't change things.

Really, we know what we're doing--that is, the "we" of the core Hurd
developers--and it's a touchy political thing that is not likely to be
helped by individuals taking it upon themselves to "sort it all out".
