I assume this is a copy paste error... Seems like you're suggesting we use
resolved by default?

Why do we care what people do with /usr/local? Nothing we change here makes
our lives easier and only potentially inflicts pain on users who have split
between /usr/local/bin and sbin. If we were to change this, I'd suggest we
just drop /usr/local/sbin from the package. Pacman will drop tracking of
the dir and there won't be any potential need for user interaction.
