I just checked standards.texi before going ahead with this, and
actually it seems pretty clear:

"In addition to its manual, the package should have a file named
@file{NEWS} which contains a list of user-visible changes worth
mentioning.  ..."

So I'd say that use of Gnulib (in general) should not be a NEWS item.
I think HACKING would be the right place to mention it - and it would
be just as accessible there (as in NEWS) to blurred users/developers.
