Thanks for the URL.
About the /sbin comment 1: "Bloating of the root filesystem".
I don't see that to be problem here. I think it would be
better to keep things logically separate and resserver /usr
for other things.
About comment 3: There is no reason for nologin(8) to be in
/sbin, since it isn't needed in single-user mode", this has
However nologin is a system utility it would be better kept
directly under root directory, if /sbin is not ideal, then
it should go to /bin -- to same place as "login".
