So, being irrelvant, they can go anywhere, as long as the tools can cope?

So, in that regard, Debian policy says that hurd's translators should go in
/lib/modules, as that's where kernel-specific extensions go.

If GNU/hurd were an OS by itself, it could use /hurd.  But, the Debian port
should follow Debian Policy, and this says /lib/modules.
