This should not be an issue at this time. You have posted frequently for
an extended period requesting input and feedback. IMO, keep your current
structures for the time being, get the stuff integrated and publication
ready and let work on other needed areas proceed.

*Then* at a later date, all can take a look and see if a substantial
restructuring is warranted.

This is best, IMO, considering all things, like 5.1 approaching, 6.0 not
too much further away and avoidance of punishment for the guiltless.  :)
