Is there an example of a case where it's worthwhile being compatible,
but not worthwhile complying?

(The exceptions we allow are cases where (a) the FHS doesn't really say
anything useful, like where CVS repositories should go, and (b) /usr/doc,
which we're aiming for compliance with anyway. Are there more?)
