I wrote the start of the thread ...

You did by advocating to hardcode it into the packages.

"Our" needs? How do you define "our"? With my Fedora hat on I say that
"our" needs are to fulfill our various certainly non-marginal
different user groups from small home setups to large systems. This is
only accomplished by not applying any "Fedora layout" that is only
chosen because "that's what rpm can do". That's a very poor design
criterion for a layout-free entity.

And the clear convention to step not on each other's feet is to not
use any default layout, neither by zodiac, nor your dog's names.

OK, to put this to an end (because we don't produce any new
arguments), we agree that we disagree, and the FPC makes its vote once
its members feel confident that they have the whole picture..
