Yes, I know.

I don't care much for emacs-goodies-el, simply because I
strongly believe that it should be separated into small maintainable

Then, the main problem with elpa-org is that htmlize.el is
developed as a separate project. FYI elpa-org contains htmlize.el at
1.43, it was released in Sep 2012. But htmlize.el upstream is at 1.51
now, released in Dec 2016.

I think that it would be a better solution. Otherwise, there's Conflicts
field available. The proper solutions would be to ask org-mode upstream
not to include third-party sources and rather depend on them.
