It does not matter for proper filesystem layouts where everything is
in one location, in /usr. The split of / vs. /usr never made much
sense, it's a very incomplete and broken model.

For legacy systems putting all systemd libs in / will always work,
while putting some stuff in / and other in /usr needs to be checked
case-by-case for every system.

Systemd does don't care about fragile optimizations or doing cosmetics
for legacy filesystem layouts, it just makes it work as long as
needed. And for that it uses the simplest and safest option, so things
should stay as they are now.
