/opt basically means "do your own non-standard stuff outside the FHS",
so no one will complain if you use opt, but at the same time using
/opt screams non-standard location with future breakage.

IMHO this is a clear candidate for /srv/ltsp, but then the "don't use
/srv even if it's clearly defined for this kind of stuff" crowd will
object.

Please spend the time to get lsb/fhs to assign you a standard root
(which anything under /opt isn't)
