That assumes all directory permissions are created equal, which isn't
the case. Explicit automatic rpm directory ownership (à la rpm5.org,
with the associated metadata growth), or manual directory ownership
(as in Fedora today) are here to make sure two packages can not create
the same directory with different perms.
