I agree an overlap would be useful. This will give maintainers of
'canned' configs, like spacemacs and doom time to update their setups.

However, just to clarify. As I understand it, after 9.5, there will no
longer be an 'org-plus-contrib' package. Those who now use
org-plus-contrib will need to update their config to install org (fro
ELPA) and org-contrib (from NONGNU ELPA). The good news is nothing will
break. When you do an update, there just won't be an updated
org-plus-contrib and you will remain on 9.5. Only after you have updated
your config will you get a version > 9.5.
