Oh no, it reflects the architecture as it is, or as it was meant.
I can know! :)

Right, it is meant as a temporal situation, as a path towards 2.5, and  
to get more people involved with the current releases, and work more  
The total restructure also should be feasible. I am now already working  
10 days non stop in coding on UI stuff, with a lot of time puzzling  
pieces together to reveil structure better...
if such restructure will become 10 times more work I doubt I'll do it.
