Mostly, signing copyright paperwork.

Some advantages:
- the GNU ELPA archive is the only archive that's configured by default,
  so you can tell people to M-x package-install without worrying about
  whether or not they've added Marmalade to their config.
- the code uses the same copyright rules as Emacs code, so that we can
  easily move code between the two.  IOW it'd be ready for inclusion in
  Emacs proper.
- all Emacs maintainers have write access to the code, so it can benefit
  from random cleanups or adjustments to new features.
