I disagree with removing Org-mode from Emacs core, as I've explained elsewhere.

It would be very unfortunate if we removed Org-mode from Emacs core
with the sole motivation to band-aid an issue with upgrading packages
in package.el.

So I would put your above argument more bluntly: removing Org-mode
from Emacs core would be to sweep the problem under the rug.
package.el is still broken.
