   Does this mean that make install should use a command like "install -o
   root -g bin" rather than a simple "install" or "cp"?  (To put it an
   other way, are owner and group considered part of an "equivalent
   binary package"?)

Yes.  We're working out the ``final'' version of the packaging
guidelines and will send it out when finished, but yes, owner/group
should be set from the install target.
