Yes, agreed here too. iproute2 does not install itself there by default 
because it was always an "optional" package in the maintainer's eyes, 
but my old RH systems that have it put it in /sbin as well, for the same 
reasons that Jeremy mentions here.

Anything used in the LFS bootscripts (not the BLFS ones) should most 
likely be located in /bin & /sbin, not under /usr.
