No. We can't assume what the site admin wants to do with /srv/.
Perhaps they have an internal software project called 'firebird' and
want to store data in /srv/ for it. By having a package touch things
in /srv/ or expect to read things from /srv/ we would be trampling on
the site admin's local config and could cause data loss or corruption.
/srv/ is a no fly zone, period.
