I like the Linux naming. Before your post, I was planning to suggest

OK, another idea... maybe that's a bit radical, but so what:
Currently, /netbsd is "the stuff that is the kernel". To switch to a new
kernel (for testing, or whatever), I have to replace /netbsd, e.g. by a
symlink to a new/testing kernel, or by replacing the actual file.
With a modularized kernel, "the stuff that is the kernel" is basically the
actual kernel plus modules.
So, I wonder if we should change /netbsd to a directory that has the
actual kernel plus the modules that are associated with that specific
To switch to a new "kernel", I'd have /netbsd either as simple directory
or as symlink to something that has my own naming scheme, just as now.
The choice of the naming scheme would be left to the user, and we could
assume to be the "kernel"(-stuff) still be in /netbsd.
