I would like to have more control over UWP updates than the existing tools (auto-update, app center) provide. I understand this directory is how some developers (games etc) accomplish this, but when I add the line

Extension Category="windows.mutablePackageDirectories"

my UWP app refuses to compile, even on VS2019 16.5 preview

The document mentions This element is currently intended to be used only by certain types of desktop PC games that are published by Microsoft and our partners, this is not for common developers, but for Microsoft and Microsoft's partners.
