It is, from my POV. (I use shared /, with the exception of parts of /var 
and /etc) 

I prefer that packages do not touch /etc when being installed or
deinstalled, and let me do that work when I activate/configure

Shared /usr/pkg systems make this even more urgent. I don't necessarily
have the same configuration on the clients as on the server, and I 
don't necessarily export the servers's own /etc to the clients.
