Let me state it clearly: I'm not against including ox-koma-letter.el
in Org's core (then in Emacs), I actually think it is a good addition
(once documented, that is.)

My suggestion is to ask Emacs maintainers about the general policy
regarding new Org/Emacs exporters.  Chances are that they will blindly
trust us, which I'm fine with.  If they have a different opinion, it's
better to hear it now than when we do the merge.

Also remember I *removed* some exporters and other files from Org's
core when releasing 8.0, because I wanted to draw a clearer line: the
current rule is "If an Org feature relies on something that is not
part of Emacs or not part of a standard GNU system, don't include it
into core."  That's why ox-freemind.el and org-mew.el new lives in
contrib/, for example.

For those features, GNU ELPA or some other packages archive (I'm not
insisting on Org ELPA) is a the way to go IMO.  But let's not revisit
this, it's a separate issue.
