Maybe, but /srv, as being site-specific data (not configuration...),
should not be needed for the entire system to work. If Hurd servers
would be in /srv and /srv was wiped, I imagine nothing would work

Also, as far as backup is concerned, /srv is, like /etc, /home and most
of /var, a perfect candidate for regulary backup, and noone expects to
be backuping binaries, which one surely expects to see back, if needed,
by reinstalling packages.
