I don't know the official position, but it is controversial. In the past, no. The thinking is, if you cut a brake line on a rock, you lost your ebrake too. Single point failure.

I have a driveshaft ebrake. Vulnerable to breaking an axle (unlikely), but in 4WD the other axle stops the truck too. Not a single point failure.
