Good question - the subpackaging is just a hack (and yes it is confusing

Package reviews for such subpackages are very welcome and will replace the
subpackages in the long term, assuming the current detailed Package Review
workflow continues.

I didn't understand from your mail what led you to post this question?

Hope that helps,
