FWIW a long term goal I had for package.el was to have it also manage
site-lisp.  The idea was to move various built-in Emacs packages to
package.el-style activation, so that users could install a newer version
in site-lisp and have Emacs DTRT.

Distros could easily take advantage of this by ensuring that elisp
installed into site-lisp follows the package.el installation rules.
This is easy to do...
