You could try making it so uploads require a warning-free byte-compile
on various Emacs versions first.

Packages can require a minimum Emacs version, if the author knows that
this is needed.

I've had ok results on my site just forwarding reports to the package
maintainer for fixing.

My view leans more towards package inclusion maximalism -- put
everything in Emacs, but also do more frequent releases of some included
packages via ELPA.
