I'll leave Alex the last word on that, but consider that the install directory 
should be actually forced to /usr/share/polkit-1/actions to make polkit work 
(I know, it's a shame, but it probably won't change). Adding such a thing 
would create even more mess, imho.

In addition, consider that polkit actions should be considered as system 
files, and not part of a specific module or program: the whole concept is that 
the administrator should explicitly allow a certain program to register a set 
of actions through those files.
