My suggestion acknowledges the existing behaviour and merely
systematizes it.

My suggestion is a practical suggestion that need to be tested on the
field and dismissed with a theoretical object.

Many businesses have

1. Small-businesses-suite
2. Pre-configured, Plug-and-play appliances

They do make money (In GNU parlance, happy FLOSS users).

That's precisely the point.  You don't have to.

Installing packages from GNU ELPA is optional.  Most intermediate to
expert Emacs users will not use such a system.

But new users will.
