As already discussed, this is not what we want.

This is what we want.  IOW, we want foo.el to live in the same
directory it is now, even if its Git repository will be on ELPA.

Why do we need to exclude directories during the build?  And what does
"exclude" mean in this context?

There are no different kinds.  They are all of the same kind: Lisp
packages that are bundled with a release tarball.  The fact that some
of them are in a separate Git repo  doesn't make them a different
kind.  We want the move to ELPA to be transparent as far as the Emacs
lisp/ directory structure is concerned.

> EMACS/lisp/emacs-lisp/package-3.el

Where 1a, 1b, and 1c are different versions of the same package?  This
is not required; the updates of bundled packages should go into
~/.emacs.d/elpa/, I think.
