Yes, I agree with you but in some cases, it could be useful. For
example, I have a customer that he doesn't know how to use buildroot,
and I cannot build for him a new release for only a new package and
sometimes he needs to install some extra package, for example: mysql,
php and so on. The method of using ipkg/opkg was very useful for him,
but it seems to be that opkg is old fashioned and Entware is cool.

I'm going to try to create a new package with your piece of advice.
