Comment (by bonefish):

 My intention is to have a blacklist (or more generally: package settings)
 file per installation location (if needed). I.e. the package content of
 /boot/system could only be manipulated via /boot/system/settings/packages.
 The file would have the same (i.e. root/admin only) permissions as
 /boot/system/packages. So from a system security POV it wouldn't really
 change anything -- if you can modify the settings file, you could just as
 well modify/replace the packages themselves.
