Part of the issues is that when people built packages one at a time,

bug in upstream docuementation.

Not disagreeing with anything you have said here but one thing that I have noticed when comparing pkgin to FreeBSD's pkg is that pkg provides a command that can display the MESSAGE file for a package which is quite a useful thing to have (even for when usage of it is rare). Could this be an option that pkgin gets?
