This will be a good welcome move. Features get more testing (by
explicitly enabling it in the experimental stage). If an experimental
package is dependent on another experimental package, a mechanism
needs to be evolved on either enabling the other package implicitly
(dangerous) or notify to the user in a very obvious manner (by
offering to bring up the customization page to enable it by the user).

Anyway, this is a move forward. So far, I have been downloading all
scattered packages and using them. I would prefer them to be
distributed as part of Emacs and ability to enable or disable them
