nXhtml is not very much more monolitic than ELPA actually. You can use
just the basic libraries in nXhtml and get the rest downloaded
automatically when you try to access them. So it contains kind of
"ELPA" inside.

But that is not the point here, but since you took it up I mention it.

As I tried to say nXhtml will somehow be mirrored in ELPA and Reuben
has said that he want to contribute to that process. So please try to
discuss this witrh him.
