Looking at a flat layout like this one gives me a feeling, that
most people forgot that it's a real bad idea to have a 
external mounted directory in the root directory... easy way to make
a system unresponsive in case of a network problem.

I keep the traditional filesystem layout which I'm used for 40 years now
and added a /l hierarchy as portal for everything else.
