Uh? What's the purpose for a 2.2 repo if we fetch sources from the 2.1 one ?

all components of the core, like all actions, generators etc.

What's the purpose of this ? Do you want to separate the "kernel" (the 
very required classes) from the "core" (general-purpose components 
unrelated to external libraries) ? If so, what will be part of the 
kernel : interfaces, the few statically-accessed classes and the 
pipeline/sitemap classes ?

I don't clearly understand what you want to achieve...
