According to fhs, where should I mount network shares, e.g. a share for data exchange within a company ? /mnt is for temporary use only, but I don't know a better place...

Historically, I've always mounted them at /nfs/machine-name/whatever. The important point is to make the data appear at the same place on the serving machine as well (using symlinks), for portability.

Looking at fhs, I'd guess the correct place is under /srv, so my vote would go for:
or possibly

BTW as regards media, fhs has this to say:

/media : Mount point for removeable media

This directory contains subdirectories which are used as mount points for removeable media such as floppy disks, cdroms and zip disks.
