package.el is customizable wrt to where it looks for packages, so its
front end is not specific to ELPA.

If you mean that the Emacs repository lacks the HTTP front end such as
http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/ provides, then setting that up should be
easy.  However, I'm not holding my breath, given the unanimously
negative reaction to my suggestions.
