When two packages share a directory sure it's not worth creating a
separate package just for this directory. What I was suggesting was
more like the games SIG collecting all the stray directories in a
filesystem-games package, same for the perl SIG, etc Certainly there
is a level at which you can create useful filesystem packages without
falling in the whole-repository or single-directory package traps.

That being said multiple ownership is compliant with the strict
guidelines version, what I object to is no ownership as suggested by
the lax variant.
