There is an old thread somewhere describing how people on debian
tried to keep the /usr split, but since more and more thing being
entangled in each other that made that painful (in some sense).
Also there was descriptions of strange connectivity thing involving
wifi networks.

So there seems to be some honest work done but it was deemed

My guess that the /usr merge is to handle (from a distributers view)
all kind of installations in a sane manner, especially for laptops.

For a stationary box, the only thing I can think of is new and more
dependancy of libs, regardless if you need them or not.
