Or perhaps a future FESCo will revist kmods.

FWIW, I'd certainly vote for a proposal to allow kmods if I get into FESCo
and may even bring such a proposal in front of the new FESCo (though IMHO
it should not be the old regime with explicit FESCo approval for each, that
didn't make any sense, instead there should be no restrictions other than a
license compatible with that of the kernel, and of course the restrictions
applying to all packages).

and if I get elected to fesco I'll make sure to counter any vote for kmods with a vote against them.

kmods are a disaster area and proof of this can be found in the near constant stream of "bugs" related to people's systems broken by them in terms of depsolving for them.
