I have the impression that you don't live in the same universe as mine:
in my world, `s.el` is already used by the majority of new packages even
tho it's neither part of Emacs nor of GNU ELPA.  Not including it in GNU
ELPA just increases the difficulty of accepting other packages in GNU ELPA.

We can try and provide something better, but as this long thread about
trying to have a more organized namespace has shown, I don't think this
is going to happen any time soon.
