IIUC when there is an incompatible change, the new config is installed
anyway, and the old one is saved in .rpmsave.

With an empty /etc, this can not possibly happen anymore in the future due to
lack of .rpmnew/save in /etc.

What should happen in some way is a notification to the admin about required
changes to untracked configuration files. Today such .rpmnew is (most likely)
the only hint. It is obviously a very bad UI for notification. And such
notification has to happen anyway, whether rpm packages populate /etc or not.
