Who is 'our' in this case.  The FHS committee?

My point was that if we can reasonably show that on a GNU/Hurd system
that most (say 90-95%?) of the commands in sbin would be reasonable for
a power user to use there is probably value in just having that in the
general users path.

You don't want namespace collisions  between bin and sbin anyway, so
there shouldn't be too much of a worry.  It's not like you're protecting
newbie's since I would expect them to not ever see the command line
