The thought was that there might be a small, or niche, product which just wouldn't work with maemo-optify and changing it to use /opt would be impractical. By not being too dictatorial the developer isn't pushed into their own repo.

Similarly, if the bind mount is the best solution to the Python issue, Python modules might need to specify 'none' until auto's heuristic is updated to exclude them (Python modules would continue to install into /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages under this solution, but the FS knows that that's some path under /opt really).

Does that make sense?
