Schemas can't manage objects that are not in schemas, so that won't work.

It would be great if we could take the dependency tracking mechanism in
extensions and expose it separately.  I would like to be able to say

START PACKAGE foo  -- bad name

bunch of DDL


use it, later


This mechanism already exists in extensions, but it's combined with a
bunch of other things.  Separating those things (and naming them
separately) might clear a few things up.
