No, some autoloads still get collected into the top-level autoloads
file.  The same two-layer mechanism is used by calc.el, IIRC.

Please talk to the current Org maintainers about this, I was unable to
spend much time on Org during the last year or so.  In any case, I don't
think this should be viewed as an issue with Org, that's certain to rub
someone the wrong way.

My personal biew is that anything that shows up as a "built-in package"
should behave just like it had been installed by package.el from the POV
of a user.  So, a user should be able to cleanly deactivate or upgrade
each such package via package.el.

Paackage.el has it's own limitations which unfortunately are also
highlighted by Org.  Some of the files that go into ELPA Org are
actually generated by an upstream makefile so that the tarball that ELPA
distributes can be successfully installed within those limitations.
