I think these are packages that come with the GHC source (e.g. to build
other included tools), but that we do not want to provide from the ghc
package, as there is a separate stand-alone package doing that.

If you start actually providing them with ghc, then yes. But it would
mean that you cannot upgrade them independently any more.
