APT is possibly not be best place to implement something like this,
especially since there are various other softwares that do more or less
what you want:

debootstrap, mmdebstrap, FAI: custom installations
ansible, puppet, etc.: shape your installation as needed.

Or integrate with your backup strategy (you do have backups, right?).

I strongly suggest that the package manager cares for managing the packages.
