That's a different issue, and one I don't care about as
hotly about. So we agree that Debian packages shouldn't use
/etc/profile.d?  If admins want to use it (and it might be
a good idea for them), they can easily implement it themselves
(only problem being that packages don't automatically install
and uninstall files in /etc/profile.d). Or they can use some
other mechanism that is compatible with what they use on all
other platforms -- which would be awkward if Debian mandated
