And why the hell no ? It's just a script! Exactly like pre- or post- install scripts in .deb/.rpm! Sure if you'll find .rpm with pre- or post- install script 100Kb in size you'll probably skip this package (it's scary: what this #&*!^@&*#@ thing will do with my system?), but... difference is in quantity, not in size.
Basically: .rpm/.deb can be disastrous beasts, .package is always disastrous beast. First choice is better then second one, though not by very much.
