If you want to build a linux package you should comply with FHS.

If you want to use solaris sematics, then compile for solaris or rewrite 
FHS and have that accepted by the developer community at large.

Standards are there for a reason. Arbitrarily changing things around 
because you think Solaris layout is "better" won't help ZFS's chances of 
being mainstreamed (The major distros will reuse to include it, for 
starters)
