Ah, yes. I see that this exact issue was discussed already. I wasn't reading 
closely enough when catching up on this thread, so sorry for that.

However, the answer doesn't seem to shorten to 'no' to me. 

A CMake macro can be put in extra-cmake-modules, and the tools for binding 
generation can be put 'somewhere' which doesn't constitute a 'part of the 
tiers' in the same way that ECM is not 'part of the tiers' for the purpose 
of deciding 'what is tier 1'.

If there's no packaging-related reason to avoid that approach, I wonder if 
we can discuss it.
