I do.  Depending on the exact timing of the change I may have more or
less time to spend on this topic, though.

Here's one issue that I've not seen discussed bradly so far: currently
builtin packages aren't packages at all and are indeed available
site-wide for this particular Emacs version.  ELPA packages on the other
hand are a per-user thing only.  With ELPA packages bundled into Emacs,
I suggest that there should be a possibility for site-wide configuration
of which packages are available and enabled in the same way that
site-lisp currently works for non-packaged libraries.
