if we're not limited by what's on film and can just make stuff up,why not argue that the Baku "peaceful Luddite" thing was a ruse and that they were secretly a guild of assassins?
This would explain the plot hole of the Baku being able to exile the Sona and their technology.
I got the impression that the Son'a left on their own.

nope, they were exiled when their attempt to take over failed.

which means we have TWO questions:

-how was their attempt to take over "thwarted" by Luddite pacifists

-how do a bunch of Luddite pacifists exile an advanced techology-embracing group?

seriously, NO ONE in the film production spotted this glaring flaw and said, "uh guys, this makes no sense and creates more problems than it solves?"
"why oh why didn't I take the blue pill?"
