I've more or less the same problems - we have a broken suspend system
in the kernel, and an apparently much better system outside. Please dump
the two non-working in-kernel systems, and replace them by the working
one. And don't allow the maintainers of the broken systems that never get
fixed to block the road.
Policies are often useful, but they aren't the law. Some parts have to
be rewritten from scratch, or otherwise solved quite differently, so
incremental change is not possible. If such a non-incremental change is
impossible to Linux, it will eventually die a slow death - like Windows,
which resists such changes for quite different reasons.
