Why "Tools"? because some other applications have Tools->Add-ons menu
item?  But if so, then (a) not all of them do that (some have it in
"Options"), and (b) the proposed menu items are nowhere near
"Add-ons", so if someone wanted to alert newbies to something they are
maybe used to, I very much doubt that "Manage Emacs Packages" will do.

IOW, if this intends to make additional packages more easily
detectable, let's find a better name for this menu item, because
what's being suggested here is more a turn-off than a feature
promoting Emacs.

Or maybe I'm missing something.
