Currently your README.md contains nothing but a pointer to the webpage.
Clearly, it's not that important to include every one of those elements.

When you see a pointer, you just follow it. Having a piece of text there would be different.

So nothing prevents you from keeping the same pointer and simply add to
it the Commentary text (which you then remove from Commentary).
Tadaa! no more duplication than what we already have.

I wouldn't put just the Usage section in README.md together with a link to the proper homepage which contains a similar Usage section, in any situation, other than to appease the ELPA readme.txt generator.

Thank you.

Like I mentioned, my reasons are mostly social, so I wouldn't mind having a change, provided all parties agree.

But doesn't putting different information in different places make sense to you, at least on some level?

For example, http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/company.html includes the contents of NEWS.md, which looks great.
It could similarly combine README.md and Commentary.
