The practical issue here is that 'xorg' stands for 100+ ports, therefore
it _must_ be a group. This is why I didn't call it core/opt/xorg in my
original mail, I agree it's confusing otherwise. It's an implementation
detail, though.

Well, "it works" is a rather weak argument, since "it works" already
now. Can you give us any convincing argument why you think CRUX would
benefit from (full) FHS compliance?
