When will that happen?

A restrictive umask still creates inaccessible unowned directories when
installing packages. And these bad permissions of such directories cannot
be verified/discovered with "rpm --verify" either.

In other cases, unowned directories are the result of missing
dependencies. And in turn, "yum install foo" installs a non-working
package. Dir refcounting in RPM cannot fix that.
