Yes, module-bluez5-discover should be an alias for module-bluetooth-
discover. There are examples of similar cases: module-combine just
loads module-combine-sink and warns about the deprecated module name.

module-bluez5-device probably doesn't need to be kept, because the
discover module is responsible for loading the device modules, and
AFAIK trying to load the device module manually without the discover
module doesn't work.

Having a separate device module doesn't really serve any purpose, it
would be nice to get rid of it altogether.
