[placement][ptg] code refactoring constraints and goals
I was actually starting to explore

, planning to propose them both as parallel changes/series so we could
see how they look IRL.
In the process, I discovered a remaining @classmethod in
resource_provider.py, which I figured should be taken care of first, so
I moved it.
And then looked for other @classmethodZ, because.
And ended up with , which removes all @classmethodZ from the project,
in keeping with what seems to be the majority's desire.
I'm going to fork another response to this thread to report on some
stuff I discovered on the original two proposals...
