Yes, but external packages lose much of their value if they aren't
developed in a compatible manner.

But you're talking about coupling ELPA tighter with core Emacs, too.
"They don't belong" isn't really much of an argument here.

The question is: What is the most effective way for Emacs developers to
spend their time?  I can't really see that anybody has made the case
that shifting stuff from Emacs core to ELPA will mean less work for...
well, anybody.
