In general, this is a good point.

But in my use-case, I will have one user besides me (it's a tool for our
in-house workflow), and I wouldn't care about it too much.

If I turn this into a Melpa package (or even a blog post), I would of
course follow your suggestion.  (The drawback is that the user would
have to (once) insert something manually into init.el.)

BTW, is there any demand for such a micro-package?
