It gets a bit tricky if you've got a couple hundred symlinks bin -> @os/bin in different directories. The point with using symlinks for it is that regular users can create these links without suid programs when they want portions of their home directories to behave differently on different hosts.
Of course, this should probably be an aspect of namespaces, such that it applies to everything, but only if you've enabled it.
