It will solve the *.spec portability issue, but ... the core question
still remains: Is this split "correct" and "sustainable" or simply
broken?

ATM, IMO, the outcome is still unclear.

E.g. wrt to the MakeMaker issue, the "correct solution" would be to let
a ExtUtils::MakeMaker spec "Requires: perl-devel", and to let all
perl-modules using ExtUtils::MakeMaker at build-time
"BuildRequires: perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)".

I had wanted to have deeper look into this problem throughout today, but
haven't found the time for it (and my day is almost over).
