"Actually, what I think would be much better is use standard packaging management such as dpkg "

I dont think the dpkg guys are ever interested to support another philosophy. Its old, it works, it wont change.

Personally I think uptakers like Paludis or Pacman3 would be much more likely to support alternate ideas than ancient tools such as dpkg (maybe i am biased, I found debian devs to be very conservative in regards to suggestions)
