The inclusion of CEDET into Emacs had the intention to try and integrate
it better into Emacs.  Moving it to GNU ELPA would only be to ease
maintenance, if needed.

My current understanding is that moving Org to elpa.git would probably
be a good idea, but moving CEDET (as a whole) to elpa.git is probably
not such a good idea.  But in any case, if some part of CEDET is found
to be useful for the core, then it should be integrated into the core.
If CEDET were in elpa.git, that might simply mean duplicating/moving
the code.
