Uhm this raises even more questions, in case it belongs to /bin:
- should it be named /bin/vim or /bin/vim.tiny?
- in both cases, what we do to the alternative in /usr/bin/? should it
  "consider" the executable in /bin or not?

But, first and foremost: why it should have an executable in /bin
instead of /usr/bin? :-) Is there a concrete advantage in that?
