that's all true but you can be pretty sure if a "app-store" with
bundeled applications exists *nobody* would package and maintain
them as RPM -> everybody would point with his finger to the app

if it goes in that direction, and it starts faster than anybody likes
you do a dramatical harm to the userbase which likes the consistent
package managment and *really used* conecpt of shared libraries
