While it's a really nice idea, you have to to think of all the old software which won't use it unless repackaged, which is unfeasible since most authors won't answer to emails pertaining Amiga stuff anymore.
How much new software is still actively developed and installed often on our Amigas? Most of it it's stuff released in the late 90s, early 00s...
