Well, I strongly disagree. What you propose goes far
beyond the quote
from FHS you tried to use to support your proposal.
Currently, the common practice for servers like FTP servers, TFTP
servers, HTTP servers etc. is to create a logically named subdirectory
under /srv, set its permissions as needed and point the default
configuration of the daemon to it.
Important observation: this common practice does not contradict the FHS
quote at all. However, your proposal strictly forbids it. Therefore such
rule has no support in the FHS quote.
I don't think Ludwigs proposal was meant to forbid this practice. As you
say, it makes sense to create empty directories under /srv and let the
config point to them. But a set of files coming from a package that's
supposed to be a web app (i.e. not just server software with a
pre-configured but empty directory, but rather a collection of data and
code files) should not be placed under /srv/ for the reason Ludwig stated.
So, if the proposal would be amended to be explicit about allowing empty
dirs in /srv/, would you still see issues?
