IMO, we don't need this package. The binary's main purpose on the googlebot
is to demonstrate the Chrome interface on ChromeOS and in order to use when
you build a ChromeOS build (if you read the instructions, there is a step
where the this binary has to be downloaded)

Now, as it is, chromium-os-bin, provides a Chromium build with some more
features like clock, network settings, that apply on ChromeOS. It is not
ChromeOS/ChromiumOS itself
