But please be as fair as to admit that w/o uname-r in name the
problems are several magnitudes worse. rpm -U/-i will nuke or
overwrite kernel modules of the running kernel in a uname-r-less
scheme.

uname-r-in-name and the kmdl scheme isn't going to bring peace on
earth, but it is already very close to the requirements on kernel
module packages which no merging-versions-scheme can be.
