It would be hard to write a check without numerous false positives. Under
those circumstances I think they would be classified as "I:" messages, which
hardly anybody would see anyway. I suppose it would be possible to write a
check for empty /usr/sbin, /usr/bin, /etc, ... in packages != base-files, but
that would miss a lot of cases.
