I would still like to see kmod packages entirely deprecated in Fedora.

If you want to maintain that kernel code and ship it with the 'Fedora'
brand on it, why don't we just give you commit access to the kernel
package? We can trust you to limit yourself to just those areas, and we
can trivially disable your patch(es) if it gets in the way of progress.

We've done precisely that kind of thing before (including for bcm43xx
before that got merged). There's just no need for separate packages.
