If we are moving files into the current directory structure, I'm not
sure we need package.el at all. It would be doing something totally
different from what it does at the moment (which is select, download,
install and initialize packages).

I think that this is essentially what ever we choose, although
personally, I would not have defaults, just a set of standards which
need to be followed.

We have some of this with ELPA already; I've already noted that there is
no standard location for test files in ELPA, and it is something I would
like to add.
