Yah, but, it adds just another level of indirection and possible
confusion.   I would prefer my mounts to be more clear.

Hmmm, a place for an automounter to work...
Well, that could involve more than just media devices - demand 
directories of files and home directories or users' scratch directories
come to mind - so maybe a better name than media could be discovered.

On our Sun systems it is in /opt/home, but I never liked it
that way because we also use the name home for another directory
someplace else plus opt ends up being a garbage dump for everything
they haven't thought out well on Suns.
