You can add my voice to "I'd rather just have in ELPA (and we should be moving more and more packages there).

There was some cool idea a while ago to have even Emacs stable releases package some core deps directly from ELPA (similar to
what languages like Ruby do). That simplifies the maintenance of Emacs itself and gives more flexibility to users to update stuff while waiting
for new Emacs releases.

That makes sense.  The more packages you have, the harder it must be to
maintain a stable emacs.
