In our model:
- /usr is vendor supplied
- /var is OS state
- /etc is admin config
- /boot is machine owned and sometimes even shared with other OS (EFI partition
Well, at least in fedora + rhel the efi partition is /boot/efi ...
I suspect you are not happy with that?
Care to outline why and what your plans are?
One advantage I can see when the efi partition becomes /boot is that the
uefi firmware can see the kernels and booting becomes simpler: No need
for ext2 filesystem support in the boot loader, and you can probably
even use uefi shell to boot your system.
