I can't speak to this, sorry. I'll just mention that I think:
(1) it could be a large undertaking and (2) there is existing
code out there that depends on or enhances cus*.el and wid*.el
Personally, I would prefer that we live with it, and try to
improve it incrementally, rather than opting for a rewrite or
replacement. I'd like to see a resident Emacs expert on wid*
and cus*, rather than someone who doesn't master it just trying
for a replacement.
(Yes, I'm conservative wrt this stuff. Emacs is one of the
few things I'm conservative about. ;-))
