Yes, doing it the other way would also be pretty confusing: how to
remember which directories in ~/.emacs.d/elpa are git repositories?

It would also break my use case: in combination with (use-package foo
:ensure t), a simple "rm -rf ~/.emacs.d/elpa" and restarting Emacs
lets me reinstall (and upgrade) all packages automatically.  I do that
pretty frequently.  I guess use-package must grow support for
package-vc though.
