I am pretty sure this breaks a lot of stuff (PHP, web apps, scripts
etc.). There is no reason to intentionally break things. It also doesn't
matter who's fault it is and if using absolute paths is a great idea or

I would say if a package is known to or might be used by third party
apps or custom scripts, we should delay the move to the point where we
can introduce a /bin /usr/bin symlink etc.
