My opinion is that submodules or not is an implementation details. For the sake of this high-level discussion we should be able to keep it as "submodules" meaning "some system to integrate and manage different repositories coherently".
We should evaluate subtree as well, as you mentioned, but also the tradeoff of other tools like repo (Android).
