This is something I'd strongly vote against. It will likely create yet more
fights between people for control of any committee that designates which
packages are "recommended".

Let the community figure out which packages are best.

Let's instead encourage collaboration and agreement at package level, so we
work together towards having better packages, as opposed to many
not-so-good ones.
