says who?

UsrMove was as example forced with the excuse to support this as well
as /usr on a own partition beause one snapshot of the system

so and now imagine a common setup

* /boot
* /
* /var

have fun with restore your snapshot or / or /usr where you bomb the rootfs back
and the rpmdb is still like the restore never did happen
