"Personally, I have invested time in coming up with more elegant
ways to organise file systems too, but seeing I'm not a programmer,
my work is of the theoretical and conceptual nature. The reason I
have issues with the FHS has to do with the fact that is simply
unclear. One directory is supposed to be for files of type xyz, but
exceptions are made all over the place, and to make it even more
fun, different distributions have different exceptions, but in the
end, all still comply with the FHS. It is a god-awful mess."
