Unless and until there is a pressing need for a newer version than what's in Orbit--which has a recipe that can be updated should that need arise--couldn't the Platform stop simply stop packaging its own?

That's kind of what happened - [1] and [2]. At the time Platform (PDE actually) had the need and work was initiated there was nothing in Orbit - [3].

So now that it is orbit would a PR to consume that one when M2 orbit is ready be welcome? 

What happens next time PDE/JDT needs new ASM? Same dance? This doesn't sound like a good long term plan to me.
My personal opinion is that it's better to stop putting things in Orbit when upstream provides OSGi bundles in Maven central but use directly.
