You should not have to do that.  There is a discussion on emacs-devel at the moment on how to solve this.  They might insert package-initialize for new users into .emacs.  I don’t know if I like this approach because I’m not sure how people are going to deal with it that use the UI.  It’s going to get solved somehow.

In the meantime, .emacs is loaded before customizations.el.
