I want to discuss using /srv directory in packages

(For reference: http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16410)

Of course I can easy sed and rebuild all my web packages, but I want to 
know reason why we disable /srv in packages?

(Did I skip something?)

 >> /srv and /home are different cases

 >> /home often network or --bind mounted.

 >> for example I use 4 chrooted environment to build packages with 
single /home (mounted with --bind key)

 >> Most of distros I know (for example suse, alt, debian) use /srv (or 
/var/www) in packages. (I can not remember distro which disable it)

I do not want to split packages into /etc, /usr/share and /var folders 
with kludge symlinking.

Would it be good if I replace /srv/http with /var/www/<package> or 
something like this?
