I think having a consistent interface for packages in core and in elpa
would be a good thing. Then the emacs core would consist of the
interpreter and enough stuff to run package.el.

So, currently, with ELPA I've just tried to install the latest version
of org. This works, but afterwards a call to (require 'org-html) works
but picks up the old version, because it's been removed from the latest.

If org were not installed in core, this wouldn't happen because
org-html would have been deleted.
