Yes. Putting the "stream identification" into the package name is the

This already happens. But not in Fedora. In RHEL, modular packages have
Modularitylabel RPM tag that carries the module name and stream.

The ModularityLabel RPM tag is also present in Fedora.
Interesting. I checked the first modular package for the first module "dnf
module list" gives in Fedora 33
(ant-0:1.10.5-3.module_f28+4207+d722d224.noarch), and it does not contain the
tag. I did not checked other ones. Thus I wrote that it was not in Fedora.

Now I see that the package was built on Fedora 28 platform. When I check the
latest build in Koji,  ant-1.10.7-2.module_f31+7074+f8e1675d.noarch, the tag
is there.

My apology. Probably the new tag was enabled sometime in between and nobody
cared to rebuild the module after that (although relengs mass-rebuild modules
on branching) and nobody cared to submit to latest build to stable.

FWIW,  other F31 packages with it are:

gimp gimp:2.10:3120191106095052:f636be4b
gimp-libs gimp:2.10:3120191106095052:f636be4b
