       How about if I change things so that package.el looks at a list of
       repositories, which by default only includes the FSF-owned site?

   This might tempt redistributors (such as GNU/Linux distros) to add
   other repositories.  I don't want to ask for trouble.

Why would GNU/Linux distributors stop using their own well-established
mechanisms for publishing Emacs add-ons?  If I search for package names
containing "emacs" in the installer for a SuSE distro, for example, I
get a handful of such SuSE-distributed RPMs.  So if this is asking for
trouble, I don't see how it gets us into any *new* trouble.  ;-}
