I seriously doubt anyone will object against this route. As yout also state, 
the big change should be for 4.8. Module conversion is not giong all that 
fast, as it is now (i suspect more people, like me, are waiting for the 
moment when 'it has all now really stabilized') . We should now move forward 
asap, imo. Even if that means having some 'hackish feelings'.
