Even in a relatively minimal system, I see many programs installed
in both /sbin and /bin, though none seem to conflict:

Odd that some point from /bin to /sbin, and others from /sbin to /bin.
Some use relative symlinks, others use absolute.

These are not comparable to the "lid" situation. They are either:
 - programs using consolehelper, the legacy privilege escalation
   mechanism, which depends on one of the names being a symlink to
   consolehelper and the other name being the program itself,
   or
 - cases where the program historically lived in one directory, then
   was moved to the other and a symlink in the old directory was added
   for backwards compat. But it is the same program.

They're not comparable to the "lid" name conflict between two different programs.
