The macro started owning directories IIRC because :
1. too many font packagers forgot to own them manually
2. FPC ruled that it was ok for several packages to own the same dir

I'd say you can remove the directory from common if all other subpackages own
it, since it's macroified you don't have the usual risk of several packages
owning the same dir with different permissions
