This way packages like python.el and seq.el which want to be bundled
with Emacs as well as distributed via GNU ELPA can do so without having
to duplicate them between elpa.git and emacs.git.

This is good, but I can't help thinking that the other way around would
have been infinitely more useful.

These issues are intertwined: as long as we can bundle packages from ELPA into Emacs distribution, we can move certain packages from the core into ELPA without losing them in the distribution.

In other words, emacs.git wouldn't
contain any other eLisp than what it needs to bootstrap and pulling in
everything else as a proper ELPA package while building.

That would be overdoing it: Emacs is not that heavy, and as Eli points out, pulling out too many packages would lead to difficulties with keeping the whole thing together.

At the very least, each "moved out" package would have to have an active maintainer (or several).
