Are you basing this assumption on somethign really experienced? Indeed, when I run an "apt<whatever> dist-upgrade", I just launch the command, look at the list of actions that are planned, hit "Y" to confirm and just switch to another window and come back some hours later. In short, I don't really care to read what's happening or displayed on my screen..:-) Do you think that real users will worry about mysterious actions happening after package installs? After all, it's quite some time since we've see people complaining about actions happening after every package install.... I understand the point in your suggestion and we certainly should be careful about potential triggers abuse (just like debconf abuse I'm hunting here and there) but I don't really think that the complaints will come from our users.
