I think if we were to follow the FHS, the entire www tree would be moved to
/srv.  However, I'm sure that's a flame war that's been faught elsewhere.

The /var/www/mason directory is not without precedent.  Consider, for example,
/var/www/{cgi-bin,error,icons,manual} owned by httpd and httpd-manual.  Also
/var/www/usage owned by webalizer.  Granted, all of these are usually aliased to
public URLs, but I think the real point is to prevent them from interfering with
the document root.

I don't know how others go about this, but my use of /var/www/mason is as a
private component root so that components/pages in the document root can call
them, but they are not accessible through a public URL.
