If every package has to use it why not add this function to dpkg?
dpkg already keeps a file with the contents of each packet. This
could be extended to keep the permissions too. Or create a database
with contains every filename (just like "locate") and the permissions
of every file. We would only need an override file in /etc and maybe
some small tools (checkperms etc.).
