I think all the possible solutions require such long term planning, yes :-(

Ah, right.  Hopefully these are sufficiently uncommon and their users
sufficiently savvy.

No, not these.  This said, those also can be hidden/replaced in the same
way (tho I doubt AUCTeX would want to do that).

Indeed, I think this will have to stay at least until Emacs-30 is old
enough that we can rely on `major-mode-remap-alist` (unless we try to
go the minor-mode route).
