I would argue we should do both: migrate the kf5-*-build-include in kdesrc-
build to use branch-groups consistently and ensure that "logical-module-
structure" is up to date.

The kde-build-metadata module has a script to verify that you get the right 
branch name so that you don't have to run kdesrc-build to validate the JSON or 
ensure you got what you expected.

I might do this myself in the next day or so if there's no opposition, as 
"now" is the easiest this transition is ever going to be, at least until KDE 4 
development has well and truly stopped.
