Thanks, that's a start. I think "hierarchy applied to" leaves it to the imagination of the reader to what extent ports are allowed to deviate from that outline or not, though.

It also suggests that libexec shouldn't be used as a container even for ports like llvm-xy, and yet there's a lot more in there than just system daemons and utilities ...
