I don't know.  PK did it so that it would know what options were
available for upgrades so that it could offer you the ability to
upgrade.  We've moved that information to a public webserver rather than
being in the preupgrade package so that PK can get this information
without stealth installing packages.

Well, I don't think there are any current guidelines that would have
caught this, but it does fall into the "don't do that" category.  It
just wasn't noticed by many people until recentlyish.
