There is no such assumption. I am not empowered to speak for anyone but myself. In fact, I think I presented clearly that *I* thought that there might be value in eliminating sbin iff it could be shown that a very high percentage of the utilities were useful to a competent user. I might also note that in the past I have disagreed with the way we handle /usr too (and am still looking forward to shadowfs so that I can mount a common usr parition across all of my Hurd boxes) - So I certainly don't seem to share a philosophy of system administration with the Hurd developers.
