 1) Neatness -- package.el format puts all the files that provide one
 piece of functionality in one place.

 2) Familiarity -- most Emacs-lisp developers are familiar with
 package.el format. Tools like Cask and elpakit work with it.

 3) Sharing -- if they are in the same format, packages can easily be
 kept on ELPA and in core, and there is a clean migration path.
