They should indeed be proper (“it just works”) lights, but I cannot say if they will be able to support falloff — Albert would need to comment on that, as they are not just simple geometry with emitter material applied.

That said, there is more than one way to skin a cat, and the emitter material does indeed support a radius with falloff (or I guess you would call it that — you hook a rampInOut node to the radius, to define ramps controlling the distance at which the light starts and ends). It also supports a projector node, which essentially turns it into a spotlight — which suggests to me falloff should also be possible for at least some of the light nodes.
