[Haskell] Is Hackage becoming a centralistic approach?

on <http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hackage> I read that there is the idea to 
make Hackage support bug tracking and project pages.  This looks like Hackage 
should provide complete hosting of Haskell projects at some time.  Is this 
really intended?  Since any reasonable Haskell project should use Hackage 
now, this would mean that a Haskell software developer cannot use another 
hosting provider or whatever to host his project.  I think this would be very 
bad since the decision about how and where to host a project shouldn’t be 
based primarily on what programming language it uses.

Any comments?

Best wishes,
