When starting with any layouting, this is important:

Virtual modules (like MCM) are 'possible' including prelayouted parts,  
but the limitation is that
DRC and ZONES filling ignores this and that lead to shorts :-(
(See the mail from alainm at at the KICAD users group)

So modularisation may be possible but it is dangerous yet - except  
someone has a look at their code :-)
