Can someone explain, preferably in concise form, why are we having
this discussion about in which file to have the call to
package-initialize, given that startup.el already calls that function
(as IMO it should)?

As you might guess, I don't use package.el, but this issue, which to
my opinion seems to be already solved The Right Way, continues to
generate such prolonged discussions that I wonder where did we make
the wrong turn with package.el.
