Can you detail that concern? Not saying it's wrong, I just don't see 
anything particularly risky. It's not the way I deploy RT, but I don't 
see a clear risk in it...

I've been running RT versions since v2 from subdirectories of /opt/ 
(i.e. the default layout) on various versions of FreeBSD and Linux and 
never had a need to point a server-wide document root there. I've not 
put a 4.x on CentOS7 instance into production yet, but I have an 
extended demo instance of RT4.4rc1 on CentOS7 system running, being 
lightly exercised and tweaked for a prospective customer for months now 
with no problems related to filesystem location, entirely in /opt/rt4/.
