YES!

But, I would extend that to /home because, while in a technical sense perhaps
/home is considered "non-default non-system information customisation" clearly
from a users point of view (usability?...) there is a default - what get set up
as the default when a new user is created.  AND this is, from the novice desktop
users point of view, where most of the progress is apparent from one iteration
of fedora to the next.

(Looks like since I left MacOS8.1 behind Apple have incorporated Clean-Install
Assistant in their OS)
