I do not see it as a layering issue.  It is more a plea to move away
from simple imperative customization and towards declarative expression
of policy / intent.

I imagine such choices being made by one-of selections in which the
default value would be "classic Emacs".  Thus one knob might be

    - classic Emacs
    - OneOnOne

Further, our customize framework would have to be enriched to make
default values potentially a function of a policy query.  (A simplifying
restriction would be require that all policy choices be evaluated before
loading any customizations.)
