Yes, I agree the tradition has been without package/. I myself used to
prefer without package/. However, it is not very consistent, as then
when we have boot/uboot, is it about package/boot/uboot ? Or when we
have core: <something>, is it about the package "core" ?

While I was personally not adding package/, I saw others doing it, and
ultimately found it more consistent.
