I'm sure the XEmacs guys could tell you ;-)

Having a package in ELPA means that it can be updated independently
from Emacs.

Having packages in elpa.git instead of emacs.git makes their release
schedules independent.

Having bundled packages in both emacs.git and in elpa.git means
2 branches to keep in sync.
