+1.  Installing base to a single filesystem image is not a hardship
and makes many things simpler.  Base is not so large that this is as
costly as it was in the 1970s.

It doesn't have to apply retroactively, of course, but maybe support
can be follow the usual deprecation process.

Administrators can still keep separate /usr/local, /usr/src, /usr/obj,
/var/log, etc, as Andriy suggests.  None of these impact the
functioning of the early base system nearly so badly as /usr/*bin,
/usr/share, and /usr/lib.

The other option is just putting all the base libraries and binaries
in /lib and /*bin (unfortunately, I don't think /share exists).  The
current sorting of items into /usr or not /usr is haphazard.

Best,
Conrad
