I think that's an interesting idea, and wish I could help.

It's not a major blocker either way, since certainly maintainers can use
the package archive, with a little more effort.  I personally would be
somewhat more likely to use debbugs.el if it were in trunk, but maybe
this will just spur me to learn to use ELPA as a matter of course too.

I guess I don't have a strong argument to make, just a mild preference
for having it in trunk.  Your call.
