I don't think we will be able to answer that question before it
happens, sadly.  And that's been planned since ... Emacs-26 :-(

There's a branch in the `emacs.git` (I think it's
`feature/core-elpa-by-copy`) which attempts to do that, but IIRC it
needs a bit more work, and more importantly, it needs a clear support on
the part of the head maintainers (because this is a fairly big change in
terms of what it imposes on what you need to do to build "normal Emacs"
from Git).
