This is my interest really. I want to be able to use package.el format
in core, put packages both in core and on ELPA, and not have ELPA
packages tightly tied to core release cycle. At the moment, these are
either not possible or a PITA.

As it happens, having this work nicely should also gives a technically
painless transition between a package being a third party, then ELPA,
then a core package. This strikes me as a good thing.
