Well, it will be maintained by a core developer. :)

Quite a few packages in ELPA come from Emacs committers. Stefan has several (e.g. sml-mode). I maintain three (2 of which are comparable in popularity to use-package, judging by the number of stars on GitHub).

It would also be in the
Emacs manual, and blessed as an official method for declaring complex package

Packages can also include manuals (I don't know the details, but e.g. Flycheck does). Of course, you can't declare use-package to be "blessed" that way.

Further, I wouldn't want it changing on users as ELPA updates. Once a user
downloads Emacs X.Y and reads the manual on how to write such configurations,
the information should remain true until Emacs X.Z.

Do you expect use-package to depend on new features in every Emacs version? Otherwise, you can have pretty much the same by only releasing a new version of use-package once a year. :)
