Well aware of that, therefor my question.

> in other words i believe in order to use litex you kinda have to treatnmigen as a foreign architecture (vhdl, verilog) just like it's donewith any other soc such as microwatt, vexrisc and so on.

I would like to go to other way: having litex peripherals as external source in nmigen top. Reason is that I do plan to use the nmigen Platform for defining the IOs etc; also for the 0.18um prototype.
