The easiest approach to de-extension-alization (cool word, eh?) is of 
course to tightly integrate the code into an existing module.  However, 
if there are good reasons to keep the thing separate (e.g., because it 
would drag in inappropriate dependencies), then there is no reason not 
to do so (as has e.g. be done when de-extension-alizing PDF import).
