I'm likely missing something, but why is `package-initialize' in user
space at all?

Can it not simply be called internally with the first instance of a
package customisation in the user's init.el file (or startup.el,
interactively or wherever)?

Wouldn't that mean there's no need to automatically write to init.el or
maintain a template file, package--ensure-init-file would become
redundant and copy-pasted (use-package blah...) code would work wherever
the user puts it?
