It is only inconsistent to the extent that it is inconsistent for WRI to develop a package format for Mathematica and provide no tools for editing or handling of packages (besides a basic template). The FrontEnd has tools only for manipulating notebooks and the concept of "line" is not appropriate in a Mathematica notebook. On the other this is an opportunity for someone else to develop such tools. For example, on the Mac someone familiar with Tcl could develop a Mathematica package mode for the AlphaX editor (or using Tk instead of TCl one could do this for AlphaTk which also runs on Windows).
