Lets build all of /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin static then.  You
would have all kinds of capability you didn't before.

/rescue is the consession made between those that want a dynamic / and
those that want a static /.  Its purpose is only to allow one to do the
things they could before with a static /.  It is not to become a can or
worms that ends up being a duplicate of 50% of the system.
