Who's going to be testing this?  I've a slight suspicion that sometimes
people add things to CC Mode that depend on things in master.  That would
be subotimal for ELPA.

This will need some new scheme for version numbers.

What sort of "header"?  How does this header get associated with
cc-mode.el?  The actual version number is in cc-defs.el.  There may be
possibilities for confusion here.

No, 5.34 will be for the next standalone version (which hopefully won't
be too far away).  I think the right thing to do will be to generate the
"header" version number from the actual version number, and append some
suffix characterising the ELPA version, which would be automatically
incremented as commits are made to CC Mode.  Maybe.  Somehow.
