I don't include the feeds either as simple symlink just works.

Indeed, I use it as well:

 ln -s $PWD/../packages.git/utils/io package/utils/io
 echo CONFIG_PACKAGE_io=y >> .config

So I don't think, that the package should be included in the base tree, just
because we would like to use it.

Thanks for reviewing that list, those packages simply slipped through my
grepping session.
