I think we would need a very, very good reason to migrate away from /usr.
Fedora already is going the other way (/lib,bin to /usr). Going the other
way would increase fragmentation in Linux and make essentially FHS history.

Moving everything to /usr is also less work, no need to get rid of the
--prefix=/usr in most packages in debian...
