#2 still has the same big problem the __unported__ solution had:
it's easy to forget to forward port change in the previous version.

I did a PoC for #3 and couldn't find any disadvantages:
- ported modules are immediately visible
- you are "forced" to start a port PR using the current version in 8.0
- history is kept just like with the installable='false'

Find the PoC here: https://github.com/OCA/department/tree/v9-init-poc
(sorry for using the OCA repo)
Check the history for the module ported to v9:
