I guess it all depends on what you mean by "the antenna" - does it or 
doesn't it include the impedance matching components?

My personal view is that if you talk about a "tuner" you are talking 
about something separate from the antenna, so I am with Ken N6KB on this 
- a tuner cannot change the inherent impedance of the antenna. On the 
other hand, impedance transformation devices I *would *consider part of 
the antenna would be a "capacity hat" or the "folding" of a folded 
dipole. Of course there will be grey areas - for example is a Beta Match 
part of the antenna or part of the antenna system?
