Alternatively, terraform itself could be packaged, but not the provider

By default, it will download the providers.  I don't know of any easy
way to force terraform to use system-installed provider binaries anyhow.
Maybe not ideal, but also not that different from the situation with
maven, pip, golang, etc.

I'm not sure there'd be much benefit though.
