Your earlier message summarized the problems that I remember.
(Perhaps I've forgotten some.)  I'm afraid that the only reliable
way to test changes in this area is to have many Emacs developers
and installers, who use different styles, build Emacs and report
the problems that they see.  This would be a reasonable thing to
do, if the benefit is large enough relative to the cost (something
that's not clear to me).
