Err... I think I didn't get the question. Of course at the end of the day the
bank is driving the data. Gnucash + HBCI is just yet another means of
accessing that data, but this access method needs some special setup (public
RSA key exchange and verification, for example).

The latter. I imagine the account properties dialog will have a button "make
this account HBCI-enabled", or something like that.
