I have the impression the installer still puts / and /usr in different mount
I have a fully useable dynamic root branch visible here:
Most of the commits were needed to move a few things to /lib and /libexec to
support the / and /usr distinction.
I kept a few binaries statically linked, mainly to avoid moving the various
pthreads implementations to /lib .

That's probably fine, the real distinction is between /+/usr and /usr/local
or /usr/pkg nowadays.
I like it when things are kept simple and easy to understand.
In that vein, I don't think it's worth it to implement some complicated scheme
