I'd personally like this to happen, yeah. It's in line with the

it was a long standing bug (IMHO, it certainly was a long-standing

What's wrong with /usr/lib/name/?

Everything. lib shall not contain executables. lib shall not contain
subdirectories. lib shall contain only libraries. lib shall contain
_nothing_ on lib64 platforms.

IMO /usr/libexec is redundant.

20 years of linux distros doing it wrong by overriding perfectly fine
autoconf defaults (caused by the FHS not grasping the concept) makes you
think so. It is redundant in the same sense that e.g. /usr/include is
redundant; let's put everything into /stuff/ .
