But it appears that emacs-xtras is not being distributed with Emacs which will
reduce its reach considerably.  If the size of the printed manual is the main
concern (I'm only guessing), then perhaps emacs-xtras could be distributed
too.  Then the distinction wouldn't be so great and stuff could be moved
across more freely.

I've not suggested not doing it, but just not doing it in an arbitrary manner.
In any case, in my experience, Emacs development has never seemed to worry
about offending somebody - quite the opposite, in fact!
