No, it's not. It's the traditional place to mount something that has no
prescribed use - but it's not on your path, it's not likely searched by
update-db, and I generally figure that anything that is in /etc/fstab
should be "integrated". Usually it will belong somewhere under the more
I use /mnt for one-off mounts (where I tend to use /mnt itself, rather than
a subdirectory), but never for fstab.
