Ah, ok. What about introducing /media according to the FHS, then?
It says: "Historically there have been a number of other different places
used to mount removeable media such as /cdrom, /mnt or /mnt/cdrom.
Placing the mount points for all removeable media directly in the root
directory would potentially result in a large number of extra
directories in /."
