These cron jobs are located in /etc -- I think they are configuration
files and should be specified that way.  Binaries still don't belong
in /etc just because we're talking about possibly commercial applications.

I think allowing binary executables in /etc is a bad idea.

After all, nobody is prevented from calling a binary executable in a
two-line shell script:

  exec /opt/mypackage/bin/mycronbinary ${1+"$@"}
