[R-pkg-devel] S4 generics package?

I know in Bioconductor there is the BiocGenerics package (
have not been able to find any similar package on CRAN. I use S4 methods
quite often and a package like this would be very useful for future
packages I am developing.
My question generally is, should I consider using BiocGenerics as a
dependency if I normally submit to CRAN? My understanding is that I would
need to submit any package which uses BiocGenerics to Bioconductor to meet
dependency requirements. I have no issue with Bioconductor, I even have
another package published on there. However, the packages I am developing
are not specific to bioinformatics.
That said, if no such 'generics' package exists on CRAN I am curious what
people would think of me possibly developing a 'peer' package similar to
BiocGenerics for CRAN packages.
