Well, I don't see any reasons blocking you from putting stuff like oledb provider or npgsql into PGXN. It's not just for extensions built via PGXS, but for almost any kind of postgres extensions. The pgInstaller or Stackbuilder are probably not appropriate for PGXN, but there are not so many postgres installers out there.
