it seems that the current installation approach should separate the 
installation script from the package description.

 This would allow users to find packages by type (skin, plug-in, etc), version 
(0.8.x, 0.9.x, etc,), platform (macintosh, unix, windows, etc), the script ( 
http://xyz/package.xpi. etc), the package filesize, the author, etc etc.

If based on rdf, then it would be possible to dynamically collate a list of 
packages from a variety of supplier websites using the XUL tree widget
