Sorry about the late reply, catching up after some time off:

What do you want to do?

The thing is - if you go down this path, you end up with tree content
that isn't
described by RPM.  My take on rpm-ostree was to have a fairly rigorous
constraint that a tree can be described by the RPM database.

There's plenty of configuration management tools out there like
(in the cloud case, bootstrapped via cloud-init) that I think should be
systems as they always have.

You *could* choose to do configuration management bits in rpm-ostree,
it'd seem pretty heavyweight to me.  

One bit of postprocessing that is available right now is the "units"
this just ultimately creates symlinks for systemd - it's not dependent
on the
target OS.

Postprocessing that involves running code on the target system (e.g.
passwd -d) is more complex.
