Not sure if «“standard” package» is the correct phrase, maybe someone
has better suggestions.

+Some Emacs package are part of other ``standard'' packages (e.g., the
+@file{notmuch.el} package is part of the official Notmuch tarball).  In
+theses cases, the Emacs package should be in it's own @code{emacs-}
+package, while the ``standard'' package should not contain the Emacs
+package.  E.g., the @code{emacs-notmuch} package only contains the Emacs
+package for Notmuch, while the @code{notmuch} package contains the other
+things---command line tools, C library, etc.
