That /usr is required to init IPv6 would be a bug.  We tend to
fix this by looking at the whole problem, though -- we don't
automatically move things out of /usr, we think about what
else we can do.  Often, things get re-written as awk scripts
to avoid growing /bin or /sbin.

Again, a bug one way or another.
