Doing things per packages gets too expensive:
Even a small amount of work or possibility of error gets expensive and
annoying if it has to be done in a lot of packages. The example we are
looking at right now are scripts that are handling special types of files
like: ldconfig, install-info, gtk-update-icon-cache, ... We hope to come up
with a solution soon.
Another idea under that topic is the (semi) automatic creation of sub
packages. This could be used to address several other problems like multilib
or language files. But right now it is only a vague idea...

Have you looked at what Conary does in this space to solve these issues in particular? It seems worth looking into.
