While not working on such things myself, I have been exposed to multiple
yacc-using projects in which the intertwining of yyparse() and Real Code
eventually became a problem and yacc simply had to be decoupled in order
to restore sanity.

What you are proposing here sounds similar so I would expect that it will
also turn out to be a Good Thing.
