Thank you for this, i have not seen that Wendy suggested something
completely different for /usr/local/. What I mean is this:

3. Files created, downloaded, or modified by a system administrator.

         a. Installation path for PPD files

         b. Installation path for print drivers

This way it is the very same structure as in /usr/ and/opt/.
