My motivation is to protect package maintainers and installers against
* tools moving to different packages.
* tools moving to different places.

Actually, I would like to see a policy of this kind implemented:
* All tools being used in rpm-scriptlets must be using an absolute path.
* Each tool being used in rpm-scriptlets must be accompanied by a
corresponding Requires(post|pre|preun|postun|..).

IMO, this would help avoiding such changes breaking upgrade/update paths
and would help avoid users to break their systems.
