The question was not whether the file system layout as we know it

quick access to sbin binaries by default. Changing the default[1]
PATH is the probably the most simple way to achieve that if you
don't want touch individual packages and add extra symlinks.

It's also worth bearing in mind that sudo uses the user's environment
(including path) by default, so sudo <something in sbin> doesn't work.
Which confuses many people coming from ubuntu.
