seq.el is a data structure library providing operations on sequences.
cl-extra is a mix of various things, many of them is operations on

I don't see how/why one is naturally "above" the other.

The motivation was to be able to use sequence operations in preloaded
packages and we don't want to preload cl-lib yet (and even less
cl-extra, AFAIK).
