Question: is it too early to "integrate" use-package documentation in
standard Emacs documents when there are other variants of use-package
(quelpa, straight, etc.) out there that may enhance or replace it?

Personally, I could see use-package (or variant) be the standard tool
for providing a standard structure to an init file and, so, talking
about that structure and how use-package helps facilitate it would
belong in the "Customization" section of the Emacs manual.  This would
be for new users graduating from push button setup (M-x customize) into
the next level of "programming" Emacs to fit the environment they want.
References could point to the Elisp manual to go beyond the basics of
"initialization" (setq, setup functions, etc.) to full programming for
really special customization.
