A demonstrative implementation can be done on a branch. This has the
advantage that you see the real implementation and hence you have a
solid basis for measuring its implications, maintenance-wise. And when
it receives the ok, a simple merge is enough, instead of having to
instrumentalize the Elisp sources.

Besides, an implementation on ELPA not only causes much more work, but
it is mostly invisible to the developers (see Lars' post).
