but I would see /sbin and /lib/exec

/bin - all executables
/sbin - perm: 700
/boot - all boot files
/dev - devices
/etc - system configuration
/lib - all lib*.so
/lib/exec - instead /usr/libexec
/svc - services
/home - user directories
/root - the root home
/var - spool, run, log, cache
/share - man pages, locales, dependencies
/devel - development environment
/devel/lib - all lib*.a
/devel/ports - ports, packages
/deve/distfiles - packed sources
/devel/src - kernel etc.

/devel can be easily separated from the system and then the / will be
very small.
