With this argumentation you could also put man1-8 into one directory ...
And - what about using a script for backup?

I am using fhs-2.1 as reference. 
As I was wandering myself how I should order them and
the fhs did not mention them explicitly I guessed this to be
a matter of own decision. (And I hope it stays like this.)
And - not only Debian, also my DLD uses no top /rc.d directory.
