Well, in my case, easyness of backup. I run http, mysql, samba, ftp and 
torrent services on the same machine. Fedora having short lifetime, I prefer 
to have all that in one directory. Otherwise, I would need to 
backup /var/www/html, /var/lib/mysql, /wherever/samba-shared, /whatever/ftp/dir 
and /srv/torrent.

Besides, I believe /srv is the official standard for this, why not use it?
