No, that's not it.

It is because code talks much louder than words.

This is kind of a silly argument here since the code change is trivial. There is a potentially large impact on the system that merits discussion. Moreover, there is a whole bunch of other code still needs to be written to make this workable in production that depends to some degree on what choices are made here: what does pkg show for these? How do upgrades work? The installer needs modifications to use pkg instead of tar. It's not clear what the migration path to/from a packaged system is, since the packaging is apparently optional.

If it would help, I am happy to generate a patch to make the discussion concrete.
