That makes sense, however you're losing updates with this approach, which
you have with MELPA.
The mere fact that Emacs now centralizes all its packages (MELPA,
Marmalade, ...) is a huge step forward. I think I've seen instructions on
how to automatically install a bunch of packages at Emacs startup, but
(AFAIR) they were not straightforward.

I'm not sure I understand that one. On Debian, what I do now is that I
install Emacs 24 from the Debian repository (with root access), and then
everything as Emacs packages, including those that are nevertheless in the
Debian packaging system (e.g. ESS, AucTeX, ...).
