I understand that, and that's not what I meant.

I don't understand these points.

- "painful organization"?  Heck, I'm sorry but if you encourage
  non-self-contained-ness because of a long TeX tradition, I believe
  you are wrong.  When people are working together with a version
  control system, they insist on making the archive self-contained,
  and relocatable.  According to your answer they seem to be unable to
  use AUC-TeX.

- In fact this problem is acknowledged by TeXperts themselves, see the
  introduction of path mechanisms in Graphics: too bad there is no
  equivalent for .sty etc.

- What exactly do you mean on the additional shell invocation?
  The workaround you propose, I guess, does require this.  But if it
  becomes a feature from AUC-TeX, no such shell is required, only the
  env is changed.
