Including new fields for existing custom page layout in extension packages

I have a managed package with some custom page layouts for Accounts and Contacts. I've built an extension with some additional custom fields, and I would like to include those fields on the custom page layouts originally installed with the managed package.


I can add the custom fields to the extension package, and I can add the custom fields to the custom page layouts in the extension environment, but it seems I can't include the page layouts in the package for the extension. Is there anyway to also include those custom page layouts from the managed package in the Extension with the extra fields? Or do I just have to create new page layouts in the extension, and instruct the administrator to create new profiles that use these new enhanced page layouts when they install the extension?
