It's just a convention, and there's no reason to change it, other
than, maybe, POLA (from whose perspective, becomes the question).

hier(7) needs a lot of clarification if you ask me.  IMHO the LSB
is much better specified, but it's also much longer.

KDE will stay where it is until there is a good reason to put it
somewhere else.
