We're miscommunicating.  I'm talking here about how to make it easy for
your personal in-development never-to-be-distributed packages (which you
currently don't bother to package) to appear and be "default configured"
in the same way as normal ELPA packages.

If those packages really use mechanically generated files and hence need
some kind of "install" step, obviously, you could just use something
like cask or elpakit, indeed.  I was only here focusing on the
"quick-and-dirty" packages where you want the packaging effort to be
kept to an absolute strict minimum.
