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

Putting the rpmdb in /usr/share is no worse than the current

Right now machines sharing /usr from a central machine over the
network are going to have an rpmdb that will contain an invalid
picture of the contents of /usr

That's a ridiculous straw-man argument, Richard.

/usr/share was INTENDED quitre clearly and is there in the file
definition/description to that end.

And if I understand correctly, in such usecase machines sharing
/usr/share have to be running basically identical system, and I would
guess that they would be deployed via other means than by system
installer - thus having rpm database in this location would not change

Also I wonder if such usage is supported by openSUSE.
