Wouldn't that stem from the fact that there is no actual "core" and "addons." It'd be hard to make that distinction on linux since it would be arbitrarily set differently in every distro. Considering the two options, having everything in /etc is probably for the best.

No, no, no...

It should be very clear what binaries and related config files are part of the default system and those that are user added, be it Linux, BSD, Solaris or whatever.

This is the very reason seasoned admins gravitate to the BSD's - correctness.
