Looks nice, thanks!

Two comments:

o relative symlinks with '../' are doomed to break on mirrors, as
  content is usually split around volumes as needs arise, so I would
  suggest to not use any such symlinks.

o mirrors should be prepared for that switch, but currently only core
  and extras subfolders are exported to them via rsync. It would make
  sense to open up rsync modules (for the mirrors) at the linux
  hierarchy as soon as possible, so the mirrors can adjust before the
  layout switch. The nice side effect would be that mirrors could use
  the same rsync module for mirroring other content, too, like liveos
  or epel stuff.
