What kind of technical issues would be relevant in these cases?

This last criterion I don't think I understand.  I was under the
impression that we are not supposed to limit admission of packages
just because there are alternatives to what they do.

For example, symbol-overlay seems to do what hi-lock-mode does.  But
my understanding was that this fact shouldn't preclude symbol-overlay
from being admitted.  Now you seem to be saying that we shouldn't add
such packages?

Bottom line: I'm still confused.
