If you design your product for JUST the BSD world, that's fine.

There is more to the world than BSD.  For Solaris, the Unix that I use,
/usr/local is NOT best practice.

Now BSD and System V have, over the years, exchanged genetic material in 
ways that would make a stock breeder blush.  I think it would be hard to 
find a system that was PURE BSD or PURE System V.

I think it is clearly better to put applications in a directory tree by 
themselves, one that is NOT part of the O/S.
