Like avoiding to have to download dozens of megabytes of never used
modules each time the kernel changes ? :)

I can see the issue of kernel and modules getting out of sync. In fact,
what's why I personally hate modules and try very hard to never depend
on them. But I don't quite see how this misery could be substantially
improved by rearranging the packaging structure.
