So the second question is:  Do we really need to rework this for 21.4?

I suggest that we keep things as they are now for 21.4 (with your
patches installed), and add an entry to the TODO list for 22.1:

Rework enriched-mode into a major mode, enriched-mode, and a minor
mode, enriched-minor-mode.  [you can add your specific thoughts about
this split here].

Just my 2ยข.
