There are no real rules, here, other than the fact that elpa.git may be
modified by us directly, so if the maintainer decides to keep the
"upstream" elsewhere it's his responsibility to deal with the fallout

[ We try to help with that by automatically sending her an email with
  the diffs that have been installed, tho this automatic forwarding is
  currently broken, as mentioned earlier in this thread:

  Help would be very warmly welcome here.  ]

More generally: it's not ideas that are missing, it's people helping
improve the setup.
