I'm in the process of transitioning maintenance of all software

Ideally these packages should be retired instead of orphaning them, but
these packages are build-required by a lot of other things.
This is an interesting
situation. If more maintainers will decide to do
this, we can easily break everything and only have modules, except we
will no longer have any system to have those modules run on.
(I'm not saying you shouldn't do this; I'm just really concerned if
modularity is actually helping Fedora as a whole or if it will
eventually break it entirely.)
