I don't think that is a good idea. "RESCUE" implies it isn't suitable for
production use which it is.

I would actually prefer to re-add all the file-system and other
modular components to "GENERIC", resurrect the "MODULAR" kernel
configuration and keep it that way until 6.0 has been released.
After the 6.0 release most users should have a module aware
boot loader and somebody will hopefully have address the
short-comings of our module support.(*)
