Please don't argue for the sake of arguing; we gave you the reason

FHS assumes that every program works from the shell. Hurd servers
don't really work from the shell.  What the FHS calls "binaries" are
only some executables on the Hurd; we have other executables that
don't work like FHS "binaries", gotcha?
