If there's no notion of "managed object content" for a Package, how could
registry services ever be defined to add or remove members from the
package. Package would then become a "static" thing that can only be
replaced or withdrawn.

Right -- a classification is an extension of the metadata for a "managed
object content" that classifies that "managed object content" according to
a specific node of some classification scheme.
