Well, considering that /usr contains just about all executables except
those that are needed at boot time you might want to reconsider that.
The standard places to look for executables are
/bin - programs used during the boot process
/sbin - privileged programs used during the boot process
/usr/bin - all programs in a distro's optional packages
/usr/sbin - all privileged programs in a distro's optional
packages and extras
/usr/local/bin } these are where all non-distro programs should go,
/usr/local/sbin } i.e binary downloads and locally compiled programs.
This rule is commonly ignored though its a sensible
So, in general, the /usr partition *should* be exec rather than noexec.
