 * Hmm, is it such a good idea?  I personally hate pkg's getting
 * installed even in /usr/X11R6...
 * If rationale behind it is "it's okay since we can track them down by
 * /var/db/pkg/*", why should we be installing pkg's into /usr/pkg in the
 * first place?  They could be installed *anywhere at all*.

...which is why we can set LOCALBASE and X11BASE.  I agree that they
could be installed *anywhere at all*.  This is adjustable on a
site-by-site basis as the site admin  prefers.
