What I've seen last year is:
1. packagers reinvent those independently (usually with bugs), so
there's no drawbacks and lots of benefits in providing them a clean
audited centralised version instead.
2. when you push too much logic in individual packages, this logic is
not updated (when fc-cache arguments change)
3. the current guidelines are not easy enough for most packagers.

If you don't agree with my solution to those problems please be
constructive and propose another better one.
