There is no such assumption.  I am not empowered to speak for anyone but

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.
