Yes, it does.  And it should, IMNSHO.  I actually don't believe that
having hundreds of packages installed doesn't already cause
non-trivial management issues, even with the loading time and the
length of load-path put aside.  You will have compatibility problems
between packages, contradictions and clashes of names, key bindings,

So it isn't like what I suggest creates problems where previously
there were none.
