Regardless of any other restrictions/enablements, the "data base" is
key. If a data base can tell from whence the original package (OP? ;-)
came, it can be used to ensure that updates/upgrades only come from

should be able to a) override, b) permanently change, ...

Regardless, A DB will set us free.
