I doubt that a dataset package such as GSE64985 is suitable for inclusion in Bioconductor. It creates unnecessary duplication of what can already be obtained easily with GEOquery. Have you considered using

humanDataset <- getGEO("GSE64985")

? If everyone converted their GEO or ArrayExpress dataset into a Bioconductor package, Bioconductor would quickly become cluttered.
