Because is now linked again'st all binaries and is needed to
be in the correct location in certain cases.  Consider having /usr on a
different partition and not mounted nor available untill after the
initial bootup and init takes over.. well, that's kind of hard todo if
you have a lib in /usr/lib and every single program in /bin and /sbin
need. (unless they are static, but that's not how we do things)
