So they never get maintained with a package manager? Sounds like a
really weird way of doing things. If you bootstrap with a tarball, the
distinction becomes meaningless once you've updated packages with a
package manager.

Some of us currently use package managers that bootstrap the system

Details? Do you mean because it should be root:root 700, but everybody
has it in their $PATH anyway? Or do you mean because permissions on the
binaries themselves is good enough? Or because protections on the
resources accessed by the binaries is good enough? Or because you just
don't like splitting things into four?
