though not fully into the technical details, I know that gpkg is a
sqlite db too; see  and , AND it is an open standard.
Here:  you can read about descisions made why a new standard format
is created and not took the already excisting spatialite.
Using the 'spatialite_gui' I can open a gpkg package too.
Using sqlitebrowser  also...
I think it is good if as GIS / FOSS community we focus on one good
standard package, so please give it a try :-)
And please let us/me know what you miss (well one thing I would have to
had in the standard is a standardized way of setting layer order and
styling, independent on styling language or GIS used... :-) )...
