Org-mode, for instance, gets regular bug fix releases on GNU ELPA while
it stagnates on core. I would venture that the contribution from the
"core maintenance team" to org-mode amounts to a negative effect,
causing more hassle than it saves.

For projects with their own development team and VCS repository, having
the project copied into the Emacs core VCS makes no sense, moreover when
they have to support multiple Emacs releases.
