Yes, that sounds as a very reasonable start. You need one
binary module being able to behave differently based on different
configurations and you do not need the complexity of audio
output. This sounds very much like the Generic audio module.

One of the first steps you would want to do, I think, is
to replace the calls of the external speak command with
communication to the hardware device.

Later, you will need to find a way how to describe the
various speech controll comands in the configuration files
and use these commands to enrich your communication
with the output modules.

Priorities will not work correctly without index marks,
but I don't think it would result in something seriously
broken. So I'd propose to leave index marking for later.

Best regards,
