Alright, so first point, I think it could be possible the Enemies of Many Faces are simply a democratic order as a result of the scattering. It may also be true that on top of this that most people of the scattering are now the independent face dancers. Since the Tleilaxu already seem to possess extreme loyalty to things, it does not seem too far off that these new face dancers could make a TRUE democracy.
Next point, I don't know how much of you guys are in to LotR (im assuming all of you), but one of the main point in the lore of the series is how elves are immortal and man is not. When men die, they are freed of the bonds of this world while the Elves just go to the Halls of Mandos to sing sad songs. This seperation (with the help pf Morgoth) made mankind's proverbial flame stronger, yet they were less at peace.
Taking this idea to Dune, because fuck you, what the Bene Gesserit/Old Empire may represent is the last bastion of true humans, making the humans who left for the scattering either being too spacially distant, or a face dancer, something arguably not human. I also mean to say the Honored Matres are something totally human, in that they are driven as fuck.
I totally just shit this out, so sorry for the shit first post, but generally Im trying to say that I doubt FH would have made Dune 7 into a battle with some new faction. I think he instead would have gone more into what it means to be human.

"Imagine being told that the forging of the ring was really not a plan of Saurons, he just helped - and it was really for the good, because it was needed to defeat these mega-spiders which were somehow related to Shelob (in a way inconsistent with the Silmarillion)...
Meanwhile, a hobbit named Norma becomes a valar because she dies horribly due to a spider-bite, returns to Middle Earth and walks around a bit, inventing everything interesting you ever hear of in LoTR."
