We are most certainly not adding a root directory for this; that would be
absurd!  ;-)

This directory lives in /usr/share, which FHS says "is for all
read-only architecture independent data files".

Note that there are already a few "standard" directories that live
here that aren't in that particular Standard, like /usr/share/fonts.

I have lots of files in /var/www/html that point to places like
"/css/style.css" and so on that don't exist in the filesystem.  It's a
completely different namespace, for good reason.
