That's the idea, yes: things in lisp/emacs-lisp are supposed to be
packages improving the Elisp language itself (hence things like edebug,
CL, avl-tree, ...).

But it's a judgment call.  E.g. I put smie.el in there but nowadays
I think it rather belongs in lisp/progmodes.

Not sure what kind of damage you have in mind, but usually the location
of an Elisp package has no significant impact anyway.
