We already treat winetricks like that. I know I'm constantly telling users to reinstall to a clean wineprefix with no winetricks. The winetricks wiki page tells users explicitly not to report bugs here if they have used winetricks to install native dlls, and has a link to winezeug to report bugs in winetricks itself. I don't see any of that changing.

That said, I do think winetricks has become bloated. JMHO.
