    when you build a program to work on an directory, all that you will need
    from that package is the binary location.

I do not understand any of that.  I think you need to give labels
to the various entities that you are talking about, and describe their
relationships clearly.

    What you will need is, instead stowfs, that get package/bin and merge it on
    /bin, is a translator that gets package/bin and put it on PATH. The same is
    valid for /lib and /sbin (I know no variable to set "include" directories).

That is very vague, so I don't see how it differs from our present
