No, no and please no. Binman really isn't as wonderful and magic as you
think. Having a simple, well-defined format that can be generated _even
with a simple shell script_ is a good thing, because it means I can go
generate such a wrapper around any random binary artifact I may have
somewhere, completely outside the U-Boot repo or the context of the
U-Boot recipe. That will, in fact, be the most common case. I should not
have to add random noise to blabla-binman.dtsi to get the U-Boot build
to wrap my FIT image in the proper format, adding weird inter-recipe
dependencies between the kernel and U-Boot builds.
