This is a bit unclear to me.
Where is the dependency issue?

First, I'm still not entirely convinced about use of image_view as
a kernel. I don't see clear and strong advantages.

One disadvantage I can see is potential of users/newbies confusion
about potentially too wide spectrum of applications of image_view.
(Some may argue that a thing that can do everything,
can do nothing well :))

If there is a functionality missing from our kernel types,
perhaps we should improve it there, instead of using image_view.

Any new functionality should also be covered by tests.

Regarding the rest of your plan, it looks good and I don't have anything
to add. I will leave the review of details to Stefan.
