I'm a bit confused by the context.

It's placed in libraries although it seems like system would be the
place for it.

I see there's a library, are you planning on maintaining compatibility
there? Are there other users? If there's no users outside, it could
make sense to skip installing headers until there is a use-case,
otherwise you might see yourself tied to an ABI unnecessarily.
