It seems, responsible development would consist of going back and cleaning up the code already developed.
This proposal doesn't address the parameter problem where a package takes it's default parameter values from the package.info file for each new instance global or not.
Why not add an optional attribute or two to the package.info parameter tag that denotes where to get the new instance value from, the .info default or a previously instanced version of the package (denoting either the first or the last case of the package's instances to cover various use cases) if available?
Either way, the one acs-global-service non-core package seems like it would be useful for other things, too. What's the big deal about having a shared service package? Each portlet has been getting it's own package designation for awhile, thereby fragmenting a package to sets of packages. An acs-global package would be a positive step in pooling these shared code and environment variables.
