For example?

Ever tried to replace a %ghost entry with a real file?

Can you give an example of the use case you see breaking?

Well, if robustness is the main argument then a method that requires
packagers to maintain file information in two places and to add fragile
scripting sections hardly reaches that goal.

Ok, with your tmpfiles/%ghost approach, we have this method, which
requires packages to maintain file information in two places.

As long as a spec file contains a %files section, that is the
canonical place for file information and won't go away. tmpfiles
config means a second place. That is independent of potential
duplication of information.

Anyways, back to the part you decided not to quote. It's already
possible to query binary rpms for their config files, documentation,
licenses etc. So it doesn't look absurd to expect information about
locations where a package dumps runtime data in rpm as well.
