I have a bad feeling that the very same problems you describe for the
future of ELPA and even worse is what we will get into here.
I really don't think so. We've been doing this for 15 years and not
really run into problems with this.
Note that our package system was designed with a core/package split in
mind. As far as I can tell, ELPA is designed only to make it
relatively easy to find and fetch packages.
