But when is control over elisp code not bundled in the emacs tarball
actually needed?  I'd say, only in two cases:

(1) code that is poised to be bundled in a short- or mid-term

(2) code that is removed from the bundled code, until
a separate maintainer is found for it.

So, a policy of minimal control would have bundled code in emacs.git
(and nowhere else), while elpa would be merely a staging area for it.
