Could we just package up the results of the jhbuild in a dumb,

exactly equivalent to running jhbuild? ie, it wouldn't replace or
conflict with your existing GNOME packages, it would just install
everything into its own special prefix. And we could have a single
less-dumb package that tweaked your vendor gdm configuration to add a
"jhbuild gnome" session.
Are you suggesting to package the entire build as a single package, or separate packages for each module? In the latter case, you'd need to know about some post-install commands to run after install (e.g. registering gconf schemas, rebuilding icon caches, etc). It might be an issue for former case too.
