That would be a sensible requirement, yes.
At some point it might be simpler for the user to navigate to the right file and position and press ctrl+v there.
Of course an option is also to check if a single sensible place where to add the file to exists
(single CMakeLists.txt file, single target, single add_target_sources/other-function-that-we-recognize) and then automatically add it,
otherwise inform and require manual user action.
How helpful that is in the overall landscape of CMake projects, I cannot tell.
