macOS does not come with an /opt directory.

I was not aware that macOS Catalina will prevent the creation of such directories, but I haven't read up on the new system yet. If that is true, then that sounds like a problem for us.

Just a reminder, make sure that anything discussed about Catalina on this mailing list is information that has already been publicly released.
