/etc/environment is a text file so it can be "upgraded" by using any text
editor, like emacs, etc.

There is no requirement in policy that every file has to "belong" to a
given package, so this is not a bug.

If the boot-floppies team asks me so, I would gladly include a default
/etc/environment in base-files, but it would be treated like
/root/.profile or /root/.bashrc, i.e. the user will never be prompted
about it in any way.
