Yes, only "filesystem" should mention /srv, e.g. create it.

Yes, but that means more that the rpm setup within /srv is ruled out,
the way you write it may be read as "rpm doesn't support domain
hierarchies, so Fedora setups should not use them" ;)

/srv was really left alone for several Fedora Core releases (only
bittorrent would install there), we should return to that setup (and
also move bittorrent away).

$ ls /srv
