For systems with a read-write rootfs, we will be slightly bending the

What about machines that share /usr from a central machine over the network?

This was the original purpose of /usr/share and many today still use it that
way, consolidating centrally thing like the manual pages that apply EQUALLY to
all machines.

/usr/share is only for exact identically installations. The FHS clearly
states that /usr/share is not shareable between different versions.

If you want a BtrFS rollback location /etc is better.

No, everything outside /usr is no option, why do you think did Red Hat
choose a location on /usr?
And this has nothing todo with Btrfs, it's a problem all rollback
solutions have.
