Yes, pack rafters take all their waste out with them. As do self support kayakers. You certainly have to do the math on user days on your groover, but I have seen both eco-safes and pvc tubes used effectively.
Generally on small craft, self support trips you don't have a large bonfire.... It's really not that difficult to refrain from putting logs in the firepan. You simply use small diameter wood that burns down to a fine ash....and yes, they pack that out too.
