It was not clear from what I wrote, but I was referring to a user --
whether developer or not -- using a release version of Emacs and that
potentially doesn't even want to use package.el to install additional
packages.  If we stick to the Emacs directory/file layout, it is a
unified layout that gets presented to her.  Where distictions between
core libraries and ELPA core packages aren't visible at that level.
That would be worth trying to achieve, I think.  (And in fact is how the
directory/files organization looks like in the current release, IIUC.)
