I wondered about that. Technically, it seemed you only mentioned
Emacs/Org, which I wasn't sure if that encompassed Emacs (the binary
application), other Emacs .el files, and Org, or if you just meant
keeping your Emacs binary version up to date (and Emacs doesn't rev
/that/ often).

If you meant the former ("Emacs" meant your stash of various .el
files), then I agree that an be a headache. I'll often try some .el
program du jour, maybe keep it, maybe not, and just have them littered
about it ~/.elisp/site-lisp. Then I potentially have to add a line to
add that to my load path if it's a more involved program with it's on
dir vs. being a singular .el file. So, yes, that's a bit of a headache
as well and I think if you are doing a bunch with extra Emacs add-ons,
it would be worth syncing.

I'm thinking I fiddle with some .el or another perhaps 2-4 times a
year, so again, it's not really impacting me.
