I don't know how many options users can handle (remember :-), that's
why I try to put unusual ones in pkgutil.conf instead.

You can always temporarily set anything  from pkgutil.conf with the
--param option:

# pkgutil -Uyu --param=root_path:/lumount

Wouldn't that be good enough for now? On the other hand, -R is still
available so I may put that in the next release... :-)
