I don't think you should make the assumption that those packages will
remain "out of the buildroot tree". As soon as something is publicly
available, there is a chance that someone will be interested in having
it supported as part of upstream Buildroot. So, you shouldn't base your
design on the assumption that this or that package "will remain out of
the Buildroot tree" because this may not be true in the future.
