What does it bring us to follow package.el’s strategy?

My impression is that we could simply follow what guix.el already does,
and thus avoid that guix.d/PACKAGE-VERSION sub-directory.  Of course we
can adjust guix.el as we see fit, but package.el is a completely
separate beast anyway.  Am I missing something?
