Yes, there's some overlap.  Anything that merges them, even partly, is
good.  I.e. you could merge the functionality of ffap-url-at-point into
url-get-url-at-pointand then define ffap-url-at-pointas an
obsolete alias.

Indeed, it isn't.

Feel free to make ffap use more of the URL package.
The URL package used to be a separate library, so Emacs packages
couldn't rely on it being available.  But now that it's bundled, there's
no reason to stay away from it.
