FAQ

Because a regular Android app cannot act as a package manager on its own. To do so, it would require system privileges (see below), similar to what Google Play does.

This used to be the case, but no longer is. Now the Privileged Extension is the one that should be placed in the system. It can be bundled with a ROM or installed via a zip.
