And I would really love to see that being part of LilyPond itself and

Firstly because I would like *all* LilyPond users to have that
available and secondly because I would like to add this as a Layout
Control Option to Frescobaldi.
When those goals conflict with placing specific functionality in a
library, we have an infrastructure problem.  We won't solve that problem
by cramming everything into the core, not least of all because such
specific solutions cannot really reliably be turned into a
one-size-fits-all approach.

So it is important _not_ to have shrinkwrapped functionality for a
particular purpose _forced_ onto users but have it loadable on demand.
And be able to offer choice between one or several different solutions
as well as rolling your own.

My approach *is* loadable on demand (just as the guitar fretboards).
What *could* make sense in my opinion is instead of adding "secondary" files to the /ly directory adding them to a separate directory which could contain such add-ons. Is there anything that makes my suggestion less general than, say, the mentioned guitar fretboards?
