I was going that way, and (re)built a few machines with / and
/usr/pkg as the main software mountpoints, rather than / and /usr.

It worked nicely, though I found /usr/X11R6 somewhat of a wart that
I didn't entirely want in /.

Then cgd(4) came along, and my laptop was rebuilt the other way -
very small / outside, /usr and everything else inside cgd's.

Many circumstances lead to many solutions.
