All admins may not call it /srv but they do something like it: /fs, /local, /data, /srv it's all the same result. so while your argument for not using it in the distro is fine -the reality is that this is what is actually done by sysadmins all over the world.+1 Thank you Seth. /var is transient data. There should be nothing there that needs backups. And users shouldn't look there for files they might edit.
Transient and not backed up? What about /var/mail, /var/spool/cron and /var/log?
