Totally agreed.

Also allow me to add that I (require 'cl) in el-get, where 536 different
elisp packages are included (and used, as they were submitted all by
el-get users), plus all of emacswiki and ELPA, featuring more than 2100
packages supported. We also have easy support for all emacsmirror
packages, that's 3197 packages (though only 1000 more from the 2100
already counted I guess, considering duplicates.).

After closing something like 500 bugs in 2 years, I'm yet to see a
report from a user having a problem related to (require 'cl).

So yes please include that library in elisp itself, and in passing,
please do tell me again why elisp is not having some namespace support
