"Why would you NOT want to make it easier? They're no legitimate reason in my book why not to change the filsystem."

you are not talking about the filesystem, you are speaking of the file heirarchy.

pretty much your 4 little catagories <which was a very poor generalization> amounts to this:

linux/unix is by no means broke. i can watch keep writing your little project, and you can watch no one adopt it.
