If you'll think about it it's minor nitpick. I mean: sure enough .rpm or .deb is not executable. Yet both have pre- and post- install scripts. Isn't it the same thing ?
As far as our packages can contain random code we can not be sure that "net-downloaded random package" will keep system unbroken. So neither rpm nor deb and of course not ebuild are suitable for such approach. Not really. Yet Autopackage makes problem worse, not better! This is my grief. This is not a packaging system - this is installer like InstallShit^H^H^H^HAnywhere plus packaging system (and later part is poorly made, BTW).
