I think a step like this would require a careful investigation.

ox-html.el is a rewrite of org-html.el, which I wrote initially and which has 
since then received many changes by the org community, all under full 
assignment to Emacs.  In the context of Org-mode, ox-html.el should not be seen 
as a new file, but as a rename and massive change of org-html.el, where the 
parser part has moved to ox.el.

I am not as familiar with ox-odt.el, but I think it could be seen as a rewrite 
of org-odt.el which is in Emacs and has the assignment.

If we allow people to reduce functionality of a package that is already in 
Emacs by making changes to it, then withdraw the assignment, I think this would 
create a bad precedent.
