I'm in favor of such a change, provided the exceptions mentioned in the CR.

I have a question though. I'm wondering whether this hierarchy should
be made visible to the scripts. In other words, which rules do we want
for include/dependencies? My opinion is that exporting a single, flat,
namespace in the scanner (actually it's not totally already) would be
better. If not, common dependencies (like toolcheck) should be kept in
the root tree and libraries (.inc) should be moved to a lib/ directory
or something.

Beside this, that's +1 for me.
