I don't see any point to the normalization.  However, being able to 
install arbitrary files in .egg-info is currently supported by 
setuptools, and that capability is used by e.g. the EggTranslations project.

I would therefore suggest that perhaps the ability to specify file 
trees for egg-info inclusion would be better, if the goal is to 
eventually replace setuptools.
