The "problem" is that if you do something like this, you _really_ don't
want to be using the current UI.  Rather than focusing on the question
of "how do I fit this in comps" or "how do I list every package because
oh my god, how else do I find something", the _real_ question is trying
to figure out what the user experience we're trying to get at is, get
some mock ups and then figure out what the "right" implementation path
is from there.
