Where does the mediawiki/mediawiki package come from? It's no longer on
Packagist; how does Composer know where to get it? It should certainly
not appear as a requirement for any package.
As for removing the functionality: do you mean the functionality of the
Composer merge plugin? i.e. that we can load dependencies in the
MediaWiki root directory, rather than within each extension's directory?

It also predated T467 RfC: Extension management with Composer
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T467>, which rejected the proposal to
manage extensions via composer.
Which raises the question: should this functionality stay in MediaWiki at
