Organization of private data is defined by FHS: 
	´/home/<user>/´ or ´/home/<group>/<user>/´

IMHO, a similar recommendation for non-personal data would make sense.
Meanwhile, I have noticed that the installation tool of the Suse Linux
distribution recommends ´/work/´ for this purpose (eventhough this is
not described in the documentation). For this reason I would recommend
to add ´/work/<organization>/´ to the FHS. Otherwise, everybody would
think up their own directory name and location.
