You provided the information I was seeking anyway.

If we decide that /bin/sh is an XPG3 shell, then we need to decide
where the POSIX confirming shell will be placed.  The options include:

  /bin/posixsh (or another name, would be ugly if used for more programs)
  /usr/xpg4/bin/sh (Solaris)

Or both the first option and one of the following options.

Using /opt would imply that the POSIX execution environment is an
add-on package, which would probably be a bad idea in the long run.
