I'm imagining all those dependent packages _also_ moving to that

Sorry Matthew but I can't see that actually happening at all... 

If they are already leaping to drop python2-* way ahead of the proposed EOL of 2020 when there is no extra effort to include the subpackage in their "normal" koiji+bodhi workflow for the main repos... why would they go to the extra effort of a special split to do that (no longer simple subpackage) into a module?
