Having the repositories being subject to two different sets of rules is
going to be quite painful - as quite a few systems assume that something in
frameworks/* is a Framework.
This is the case for CI (in the branch-rules, the seed jobs, etc), API
Documentation and a few other places.

It is much easier to make something non-Frameworks look like a Framework,
than it is to make something that is classified as Frameworks (but isn't
actually one) not be seen as one.
(ie. the rules we have are inclusionary not exclusionary)

I'd be in favour of saying they need to be moved from frameworks/ to
plasma/ in preparation for this.

- We didn't discuss it but kirigami2 tar should also be renamed to kirigami

Not sure why we need to delay renaming the repository?
