Package.el cannot deal with a two-tiered autoloads structure, so
org-loaddefs.el must be distributed (the first-level org-autoloads is
generated by package.el).  The other generated file is org-version.el.

No other package on ELPA uses such an autoload structure AFAIK.  In
general, package.el or ELPA doesn't expect that anything needs to be
generated (save the .elc files).
