Good idea, but I'd have to change several scripts (e.g. scripts, that search 
at TEXMFDIST only for makro names) and maybe some docus. Maybe it would be 
better (for me, so it's an egoistic suggestion) to merge texmf into texmf-dist 
or at least texmf and texmf-dist into $TEXMFDIST? And maybe for users it would 
be easier to remember, that texmf-dist (instead of texmf) is the TEXMF tree 
under control of the distribution, while texmf-local is the TEXMF tree for 
local changes?
