I am more worried about propagating changes _from_ Emacs.  The changes
propagating to Emacs will mostly be check-ins of new RefTeX version
which should be possible to be handled easily.  I'm not so sure if
this is similar in the case of changes done in the Emacs repository
which are to be included in the RefTeX repository.

Miles maintains an Arch repository mirroring the CVS repository, so we
have both systems available.

Regarding developers, AFAICT DVC is compatible with Emacs 21.

But why would those people get the sources through Emacs anyway?  If
it's just about fetching them (in contrast to checking stuff into the
repository) they can easily do this with the standalone tla binary or
by using snapshots we could provide just like for AUCTeX.
