Okay, how about this...

2.1 kernel-requiring stuff (and a current 2.1 kernel?) can be included
under "contrib".  This keeps it out of "main" and puts it into the realm
of "user-beware".  (Note:  This is not to insinuate that everything in
contrib is dangerous or anything, but just that you should think at least
once before installing it.)
