Or the user just adds those directories to $PATH in $SHELLrc/profile/....

Experienced users should be able to do this easily. And those who don't
knwo what to do with the tools in */sbin/* probably don't want/need them
in $PATH.

So I think at least for now its just fine to have the directories and
PATH settings separated.
