You can set up your own ELPA repo, sure.

I think it's better for org-mode to support a generic maps and weather
plugin so users can write Google-specific ones (and put them on their
own ELPA repos) but don't have to.

I was in a similar situation with Google Reader and planned to write an
interface to it until the much better gwene.org came along (thanks to
Lars) to let me read RSS feeds in a sensible way.
