Sounds pretty good.  We usually welcome new packages into GNU ELPA, so
of course libraries that are in actual use by important packages even
more so.

I know nothing about those libraries, but I'd be happy to help bring
them into GNU ELPA.

"Backward compatibility" tends to impose  restrictions, indeed.  Less so
for end-user facing functionality than for functionality exported as an
Elisp library, but yes.

Note that this doesn't apply to GNU ELPA packages which can break
backward compatibility all they want.
