I don't think you're wrong, however I don't see any clear benefits to
making it a :core package as compared to just adding it as a normal
package, as long as it's developed externally.  It's less work, and
seems to be good enough for org-mode, for example.

But you're right that it might not be that important.  Either or works.

OK, thanks.  I now did my homework and read the related threads (sorry
for not doing that first).

1. Does that mean that it is actually preferred to make all changes
   directly in use-package.texi now?

2. Should use-package.org just be scrapped, then?  (I guess that, if the
   answer is yes, we should first export the latest version of that file
   to use-package.texi, and then continue from there.)

3. Payas mentioned working on the texinfo sources.  What's the status of
   that work?  I'm ready to get started, but it seems better if we can
   avoid doing the same work twice, so maybe I should base it on his
   latest version?

See org-setup.org, org.org and the generated file org.texi.  Basically
they use org-mode macros to add texinfo markup.
