Bug#592564: document unusual but supported file system configurations

Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist

Debian supports /usr as a separate file system from /, /usr as a remote
file system, and /, /usr, and /etc mounted read-only (unless you want to
do something that obviously requires them to be read-write, like change
configuration or install new packages).  However, I don't believe any of
this is documented explicitly.

Since these requirements keep catching people by surprise, I think we
should write them down explicitly.
