It doesn't seem that easy for me... First, newly created files and directories won't appear in the chroot. Also, rpm does not overwrite (modify) files but replaces them with new ones. (Not sure but i'd guess tar/dpkg do the same). In that case, updated files are unlinked so the updates won't be shared.
