I must have missed it.  What is the reason?  Why is this needed?

If a proposed automatic use of package.el is _transparent_ to
users then that should include meaning that the Lisp libraries
it puts in place are put in place under .../lisp/, just as now.

It could be OK to add another subdir of .../lisp/ for some new
stuff that we really do not think logically belongs either
directly in .../lisp/ itself or under any of its existing subdirs.

But such a case would likely be (and should be) exceptional.
Usually, when a new library is added, it fits in one of the
existing subdirs well enough.
