I think it's good to give users a choice.  According to my experience,
the problem with the Gentoo org-mode package has never been that it was
poorly configured, but that it was irregularly updated.  IMHO Org is
pretty much feature-complete and has a wide user base, so many users
would not want to concern themselves with "make" in a cloned git
directory to get the latest (but possibly unstable!) set of features.

I myself have installed Org from git until I learned how to write Gentoo
ebuilds.  With another Emacs package (evil), I also recently switched
from git to ebuilds (maintained by someone else), because I found the
package to be sufficiently feature-complete with version 1.0.
