Without such a system the package could be without use in many cases.

I noticed recently that some external packages such as projectile where
copied but not to the extend or why that they are useful.

For example Borg only works because of magit, epkg is almost useles
without Borg.

If the packages complete use case isn't meat it should at least get all
the features that it is useful without applying hacks so it can be used
in the next Emacs version.
I understand that you try to get it closer however that would then only
affect anything after Emacs 29.
