That's a completely untenable position. There is only one kernel for
all the Editions. There will be times where the kernel needs to be
updated to fix a CVE and it breaks the nVidia driver. There is no way

No, you misunderstand. Nobody intentionally broke nvidia. It happens
during the normal course of development because nvidia is out-of-tree
and the upstream project does not preserve ABI. This is the price a
driver pays for being out of tree. The only viable solution is to get
the driver upstream, which is not likely to happen.
