Personally, I think this is not necessary. The Emacs maintainers can use
PRs if they need to.

Ultimately, if we accept the notion of a "downstream" it's far easier to
make all changes there, rather than have to manage changes from two
places. The ELPA repo isn't really set up well for development: it has a
large number of independent projects in one place, and uses branches for
something else.

Reducing the friction of ELPA would include removing the necessity for
changing the version control practices of existing projects.
