Hmm, we should probably do our homework first from the systemd side, and
provide some RPM macros so that packages installing binfmt snippets can
actually register/unregister them on package installation/deinstallation
correctly. And when that's done we should probably ask FPC to propose
usage of these macros in the guidelines, and then make the changes to
the packages...
