What would be really useful to me would be a
facility that transparently and efficiently treats
real-world CSV input as though the equivalent
input had been received as FS-separated input,
with sensible handling of embedded newlines.  By
"transparent" I mean with the same side-effects
and without additional vexatious restrictions.

That is exactly the goal of gawk-csv with CSVMODE=1, and CSVMODE with CSVMODE=-1. The original CSV notation is discarded and clean text field values are delivered, separated by a suitable OFS mark (null char, or SUBSEP, to prevent interference with real-world data).
