I think the best solution is to provide them both ways.  Baselayout to
provide early allocation on new systems, and acct-*/ to provide proper
upgrade path for new systems and dependencies in packages.  This will
become necessary at some point anyway since otherwise you won't be able
to add users to baselayout groups.
