I'm not sure I buy your premise.
http://www.pathname.com/fhs/2.1/fhs-3.7.html includes: "This directory
is provided so that the system administrator may temporarily mount
filesystems as needed. The content of this directory is a local
issue...." I see nothing there that precludes having mount directories
within mnt, and putting /mnt/cdrom there.
On the other fin, http://www.pathname.com/fhs/2.1/fhs-3.html makes
crystal-clear that "introducing a new subdirectory of the root
filesystem is prohibited" beyond the following:
It seems to me that Debian persists in using /cdrom and /floppy
_despite_ the FHS.
