Yes. There is even google and zircon/fuchsia specific checks, that are
company/project specific.

And a potential mechanism to dynamically load clang-tidy plugins is
probably loading the current modules.
I think adding a module now and doing a potential port to a plugin
infrastructure is ok not too much effort.
