It may be! I don't use ELPA. I have a hand-crafted set of packages that are
all in Git (using git-subtree, to ensure cloning always succeeds), which gives
me an extremely stable environment. It may well be a one-off use pattern, but
it has worked well for me for many years.

I guess the frequency would require at least a poll to determine.  You and I
may be outliers on the spectrum...
