Clarify '/usr/src subdirectory'

Greetings,

I am installing LFS 3.2rc2. In the section 'Creating Directories', in 
chapter 5, I'm told to copy the tarballs into "some subdirectory under 
$LFS/usr/src (you will need to create the desired directory yourself)".

In an old 3.0 install (my first LFS), it was said that I could put my 
sources under directories '/usr/src/{a-z}'. I did thusly. That install 
was seriously crippled, and I've always half-blamed some of the problems 
on the alphabetic source tree.

Therefore, I would like to clarify that I should *not* put my tarballs 
and sources directly in /usr/src,  but in any given subdirectory 
thereof. Is this correct?

Thank you.
