If yum is so concerned about this "data" safety why is it storing it in
a filesystem tree specifically reserved for stuff that can be removed
without notice?

But anyway this was not my point.

When people take shots at quotes from a neutral text like the FHS, that
shows they're only interested in harassing people that disagree with
Seth, and have nothing to contribute to the discussion itself.

(I imagine it's as embarrassing for Seth as having an "helpful" friend
yell the sky is green because you're disagreeing with someone who noted
in the course of his argument the sky is blue)
