For anyone interested in Gentoo's plans, here is the epic gentoo-dev thread on the topic: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.gentoo.devel/74464.
The overall conclusion as I understood it is that there will be no flag day, individual packages will be migrated one by one from /bin to /usr/bin if and when forced to do so by upstream changes, and some sort of an initrd solution will be developed so that the people with a separate /usr partition would still be able to boot.
