from the readme file:

  The files of the expl3 bundle provide a low-level API for TeX
  programmers with special syntax conventions, completely separating it
  from document level syntax. Hence, the commands provided are not
  intended for use at the document level nor for use in describing
  design layouts in document class files.

  This API provides the foundation on which the LaTeX3 kernel and other
  advanced extensions are built. Special care has been taken so that
  they can be used within a LaTeX2e context as regular packages.

users should review the rest of the (extensive) readme file for further

note that the package's directory has moved location on ctan.

be visible at most mirror sites.
