Admitting a package into Emacs doesn't mean its developer goes away
and we take over.  If the developer can make changes in ELPA, he or
she can also make changes in Emacs.  Assuming that the developer wants
to continue developing the package, of course (if not, it means the
package would have died anyway).

IOW, I see no reason to expect that adding a package to Emacs will
slow down, let alone "freeze" its development, not because of it was
added to Emacs anyway.
