I have no problem with it, but please don't make it conflict. It
won't add anything and will just cause problems (as far as I
understand the proposal there are no overlapping files, so a conflict
won't do anything but add an artificial conflict). The next version
of xemacs I put out after emacsen-common is out will just require that
package and that should be all that is needed.
