Right, CGAL offers a halfedge data-structure.
Furthermore, the next CGAL version will offer a BGL package that allows
users to pass combinatorial data structures (polyhedrons (HE),
triangulations, etc), as-is, to BGL algorithms (using external adapatation),
or to implement new structure-independent algorithms following the BGL
paradigm, like the forthcoming Surface Mesh Simplification package.

I would consider this a requirement.

I was just in the need for such a reference, thank you :)

IMHO, given that these primitives spread a few computing domains and
everyone has its own idea about it, I would refrain from trying to
"formalize" them in the current library.
Instead, I would make sure the library works fine with your prefered
I would just include a simple proof-of-concept primitive.
