In this case, both the current stable release tags, as well as the
hopefully to be done elpa release tags can be used. I agree that
this would be good.

Well, I think this is what is happening by now, with release balls and 
tags in git. It is more about the additional releases to elpa and how
they are reflected into stable releases, or whatever stable releases
will be.

Here I agree with Mose, I am doing most TeX packaging practically alone,
and I prefer one master that has all the development, and branches
for stable and oldstable. 

Combining what you two said, it seems that the easiest way forward for
you (upstream) and not too disturbing for downstream to stop doing
whatever "tarball releases" you are doing, and we consider the
elpa releases as "the releases" which are properly tagged in git, and
people can build from there, or get the tarballs from the elpa
