Isn't that the point?  That pain may be the motivation to assign
copyright and move a package into the mainline Emacs distribution.
Relieving it would lessen that motivation.  On the other hand, the
pain may simply discourage any development.  It's a fine line to walk.

At the very minimum, an integrated, easy to use capability to update
assigned, core Emacs packages between releases would be very welcome.
