Certainly.  In my view ‘elpa-deploy.el’ complements the
‘package-upload-file’ function from ‘package-x.el’ --- it actually uses
that as its final step.  The function ’elpa-deploy’ automatizes the
upload of a library so that after changes to the library’s code only a
single command is needed to perform the upload.

I see it as an inclusion to ‘package-x.el’.  Perhaps ‘elpa-deploy’
function should be renamed to ‘package-deploy’ and put into

I think ’package-x.el’ + ’elpa-deploy.el’ is incidentally a super-set of
’package-x.el’. ;) Are you aware of a particular reason why one would
want to make ‘package-x.el’ as such obsolete?

This may be true.  I’d argue that it has no more need than
‘package-x.el’ does.
