The way I see it is that the in tree packaging files (currently RPM and 
Solaris PKG) "lead by example". That means they stick as close to the 
ASF structure as is practical, in an effort to convince other package 
maintainers to (hopefully) do the same.

The end goal is to try and minimise the number of different distro 
configs into something a bit more standard, so that end users aren't 
constantly surprised every time they encounter httpd and friends on 
different platforms.
