for what its worth for the host-aggate case teh aplity to add or remvoe a trait form all root providers
is likely enough, so that would make a cli much simpeler to create.

for the generic case of being able to add/remove a trait on an rp that could be anyhere in a nested tree
for all trees in an aggaget, that is a much harder problem but we also do not need it to solve the usecase we
have today so we can defer that until we actully need it and if we never need it we can defer it forever.

so +1 for keeping it simple and just updating the root RPs.
