Yes, you are right. But in this case the service would be offered to
them and it would be up to the distros to either use it or not. Or the
user of that particular distro would then have the option of installing
it if wished.

And if they don't it is a waste of resources...

I'll reiterate: most distros will want to build their own packages
anyway, so just provide a well documented, stable/standard pipe to the
code (already done), provide full/complete packaging instructions, and
let the individual distros make their own packages.

Of course, I see no reason that a formal process could not be in place
for smaller distros to request assistance to have packages provided for
them - then at least it wouldn't be wasted effort.
