Comment (by kallisti5):

 One benefit of PM was that as /boot/system was read only it improved os
 security, etc.  If files in packages can be blacklisted, in theory
 nefarious binaries could take the place of legitimate system files /
 libraries through the non-packaged directories. (then again, I think non-
 packaged stuff overrides system files anyway at the moment... so that may
 be a moot point)
