The different parts don't need to move at different speed, but I would
see separate eggs as an option to drop some parts out of the bundle
again, which don't see any development at all.

For example CMFUid has never quite been expected as a first class
citizen of CMF, so having a separate egg for it, would allow us to not
use or develop it anymore, when there's really no one interested in it.

After all we are only talking about 8 eggs here and not a gazillion of
them like Zope 3 has.
