Hi. I'm not sure about FHS compliance or whatever, but Vim is the only 
interactive editor we have in the base system. Other than Sed and Awk there 
isn't really any way to edit any system files unless /usr is mounted.

If we had Ed it might be a different story, but I think Vim should be 
installed to /bin so it is available in single-user mode, etcetera .
