In reply to: iff you accept /* -> /usr/*, then why not instead /usr/* -> /*

I think something like
/local for code that is specific to an individual machine makes sense. Of course, software that's specific to an individual machine is probably being handled outside the distribution, or it would go wherever the distro decides it belongs. That makes dealing with it a local policy issue, so you're free to name and deal with it however you see fit.
