I disagree. I think having at least one stand alone kernel-module
package in Core that serves as an example of how to package
stand-alone modules serves a significant purpose.
I don't see why Extras can't do this
I also find the idea of putting every non-standard module for Core
that is not in the upstream kernel inside the kernel package contrary
to the 'upstream upstream upstream' mantra fedora project seems to
project. I can understand patching in functionality that has to be
patched in because it can't be modularized. But for downstream module
additions inside Core, why shouldn't they be packaged as standalone?
Because it's a major logistical pain when doing an security erratum,
especially when it's an urgent one.
