   So there must be some other flow, hmmm.
   What's the real story, here?

Yes, the other flow is in package.el.  Things go smoothly if
‘package--alist-to-plist’ is changed to:

 (defun package--alist-to-plist (alist)
   (mapcar (lambda (x)
             (if (and (not (consp x))
                      (or (keywordp x)
                          (not (symbolp x))
                          (memq x '(nil t))))
                 x `',x))
           (apply #'nconc (mapcar (lambda (pair)
                                    (list (car pair) (cdr pair)))

w/ the wrapping ‘(mapcar (lambda (x) ...) ...)’ snarfed from
‘archive--alist-to-plist-args’.  Surprising this has gone so far
unnoticed.  Probably everyone "installs" directly from repo.  :-D

                     => nil
