A more concrete recommendation would be to examine each proposed
package more closely and try to decide whether we'd like to have that
in Emacs or "close by", or just offer it for download to those who are
interested (a.k.a. "just distribute").  This should include some
meaningful discussion with arguments on both directions, and hopefully
some consensus about the decision.

We could also ask the package developer to state their POV on these
matters, and their plans for further development and maintenance.
