Getting it accepted by a distro probably means converting to a non-application-directory format. You can do that if you want, but I don't see any benefit.

I'm not sure why you want to disable checking for updates, but you can do that from Zero Install's Preferences window. Set Freshness to "No automatic updates".

Zero Install already handles installing for all users of a system, so that only one copy of the program is actually downloaded and stored on disk. This way, you don't need to give your users root access, but malicious users still can't hurt other users. Just follow these instructions: [link]

To install in full, make a list of the URIs of all the programs you consider to be a 'full' install and run '0launch --download URI' on each one. If you don't want to be prompted to confirm each one, use --console as well.
