Um, what isn't packaged cannot be depended on. That is a pretty fundamental feature of package management.

Um, what is present on the file system (or sonames present in a library) can be tested for dynamically
without the tyranny of having to package and install an RPM in an rpmdb.

A dynamic test that can be reproduced with external tools is at least as dependendable
as a file that is registered in an rpmdb but has been removed on the file system.
