I think we can pretty much guarantee that's not going to happen.
Unfortunately, modularization is a one-way road, given how modularity
is implemented in DNF and how our distribution policies are currently
It just means that people need to *really* think of the consequences
of modularizing content, because there's basically no going back after
that. We have no escape hatches or transition mechanisms to go from
modular to non-modular variants of the same RPMs.
That's not what the proposal is. The proposal is to require a non-modular
version, an "ursine package", for modular packages, instead of default
