If Emacs's module system were always present and worked well, this could be supported via a module that consisted entirely of glue, i.e., a module that merely exposes C functions already present in Emacs. Since the module system isn't guaranteed, though, it may be better to create new built-in Elisp functions for this, at least for now.

Is there some way that we can say "these functions are built-in now, but may be moved to a module later"? If not, perhaps there should be.
