Though maybe it might be off topic, I was wondering if it is possible to
do the compilation (and perhaps downloading / unpacking) phase in a
separate Emacs process, so that the running Emacs session is not
affected by loading the compile-time requirements of a package.

Given that Emacs is rather a lightweight program these days, I guess it
isn't too impractical perhaps?  To implement that, maybe one would add a
few batch functions in package.el and a comint interface to communicate
with the inferior Emacs.
