Maybe I should have laid out my meaning of "special" here a bit more
exactly. We mean the same ;-)

Is it specified somewhere or is it you opinion? /usr/lib64 is specified
AFAIK and also used by other distros.

/usr/bin64 is not and nobody uses it until now (both AFAIK) -- google

I think nobody really want a special fedora(-island)-solution in this
area, or?  I don't want one...
