I see the only package that uses MELPA source ("emacs-keyfreq"), and it
was definitely done so by mistake.  It will not be removed, instead it
should be adjusted to use a source directly from the upstream which is:

Oh, most of those warnings (like "function is not known to be defined"
or "reference to free variable") are the usual warnings that should be
fixed by the maintainer.  These warnings are harmless, most maintainers
don't even bother to fix them.  And the errors come from missing
libraries: "emacs-s" and "emacs-f" are needed for some files.

As for splitting this package into multiple ones, I think it may be done
in future, if someone will have a wish to do it :-)

Thank you, I added a copyright line for you, adjusted the package recipe
a bit, and committed:

Thanks for contributing!
