I just looked at the code's apparent ownership, and it looks like there
are a few contributors which would need to sign paperwork before we can
add it to GNU ELPA.

Would you willing to help get that paperwork done, or do you prefer we
put it into NonGNU ELPA?

Yes, nowadays most GNU ELPA packages are maintained upstream.
And there's no need to push to elpa.git, instead we have a cron job that
pulls into it (which also means the upstream should *not* force push
even if the last push was "just a few minutes ago so surely noone will
notice") and a new release is made whenever the `Version:` header
is bumped.
