I could agree to that, but I wouldn't agree to drop all of the
requirements.  And even if we loosen some of them, it's already
problematic: the contributors of code for the core, which are
generally required to adhere to all of the requirements, could
rightfully feel they are treated unfairly, even though developing the
core benefits Emacs more than an unbundled package.
