    In many/most cases they were written specifically for Gnus, so I cannot
    agree with the above.

Perhaps a few of them seemed to be special-purpose for Gnus when first
installed.  But some of them were clearly always general-purpose
facilities.  Those should be installed in Emacs as ordinary parts of
Emacs, after a suitable discussion here.  We should discuss the
right design for them, just as we would if some other part of Emacs
had been the motive for writing them.
