Decklin, what are your thoughts on this? Would it make sense to move the
Music Playing Daemon's mpd binary to /usr/sbin/, and the manpage to
section 8? I have the impression (perhaps wrongly) that mpd is mainly
start via an init script, so it wouldn't hurt too badly.

The problem is that mpd is a key binary in the mpich2 package,
referenced all over the place, and it would really be confusing for
users to rename it to (say) mpich2-mpd.
