Yes, putting web apps in /var/www/ is just flat out wrong for at least
two reasons I can think of:

/var/www is where local content goes. Similar to /usr/local, nothing
in /var/www should ever be placed there or modified by the package
manager. (Yes, its arguable as to if /var/www is the right place for
this stuff. This argument still applies to wherever the "right place"
may be)

Executables of any kind, whether they be binaries or scripts, simply
don't belong anywhere in /var, period. They belong somewhere in /usr,
which the truly obsessively paranoid can mount readonly, protecting all
binaries.
