Agreed, but this doesn't have anything to do with a pre-req for
BOX1 in the explanation I quoted from. This would be more of a
pre-req on the UI client side, in that the profile would tell
the Build-Target (daemon) where to find the package.

So, actually, it would be a pre-req on the client (UI) side, right?
