Well, there's a bit of a difference between "no objections" and "support", but

No, it's not a framework; kdesupport is the right logical place for it.
As for how closely tied to the frameworks it is, I'm not sure. Currently, we
release in sync - it occurs to me now (possibly too late) that at some point
it may make sense to bump the major version of e-c-m, even if we don't bump
the major version of KF5 (eg: bumping the required CMake version and dropping
some compatibility modules or function interfaces that are long-disused). The
extent to which the frameworks SC guarantee extends to e-c-m is vague, at
least (after all, it doesn't necessarily extend to other frameworks
dependencies, and e-c-m isn't stricly required to *use* frameworks, only to
build them, and it's not tied to Qt versions in the way frameworks are).
