do is unnecessary; we aren't dealing with a full OS, as much as we
sometimes pretend we are. But in particular they perform search and
filtering in powerful and relatively fast ways that would be wonderful to
have in emacs.

You'll have to be more specific. What features do you feel are missing the
Emacs has fantastic searching and filtering capabilities (see occur, for
instance), so I don't see a huge need to add that onto package.el itself.

As for the async stuff, yes that would be nice. The Paradox package
implements asynchronous package operations, if that's what you're looking
