The point remains though: no matter what side of the fence you sit on
regarding greater package granularity, I think Tom is bang on the
money - crafting a guideline to fit the broad and diverse range of
upstream packages in order to achieve your desired goal seems
impossible to me. Arguing over the merits or otherwise of increasing
the packaging granularity isn't going to change anything. If you
really believe this is an important and required change, try drafting
the guideline.
