I agree that these are voids in the Emacs functionality.  The argument
is not about whether there are voids, but about the ways to fill them.

I don't know what are MELPA-libre or ELPA Contrib.  It sounds like
they are ideas, not real repositories.  If the intent is to create
package repositories that are not part of the Emacs project, I have no
objections (and even if I did, people could rightfully ignore them).
