I took the sense of the OP to be that the concept of a project-root
deserved to become part of the core set of emacs concepts unrelated to
optional packages e.g. much as file and directory local variables.
Once the concept gets pulled into the core extension author simply
assume existence of project-root functionality without needing to have
to enable in any particular way.
