In an ideal ELPA world, startup is fast because the automatic setup is
cheap (just a few autoloads and such).  So if the automatic setup is too
slow, that can be for one of two reasons:
- some package(s)'s setup is too expensive.  You should then disable the
  offending package's startup (by setting package-load-list), and report
  the problem to the package's author.
- each package's setup is fast but the overall setup ends up still
  too slow.  Then please M-x report-emacs-bug complaining that ELPA's
  automatic setup time is too expensive and needs to be re-designed.

Similarly, I don't see why use of use-package would imply that you
disable the automatic setup done by ELPA.  use-package should
complement it, not replace it.

I would appreciate if you could investigate the actual source of slow
down, because it's something that shouldn't happen,
