I believe you are not entirely correct: bash is kept in /bin.  /bin/sh
is a symlink to /bin/bash.  csh is also in /bin, although this is a
symlink to /etc/alternatives/csh which is a symlink to /usr/bin/tcsh. 

Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half of the people
are right more than half of the time.
