I think on the whole your current design wins over packed commits
(although of course this depends on the exact ostree usage pattern):

 - Fetching just the metadata is a big win, the user/system can decide
   if the download is one they want/can-afford to download right now.

 - Being able to work out that you only need certain objects (and how big
   they are) based on the metadata alone is even nicer.
