I don't think that is reasonable, the function signature expected by
:set is slightly different from the the function signature that would
be most natural from Lisp.  I.e. something like

  (decustom foo-bar-mode nil
    "Foo bar minor mode.
  Must be set with (foo-bar-mode VALUE) or through Customize."
    :type 'boolean
    :set (lambda (symbol value) (foo-bar-mode value)))

is quite reasonable.  I.e. SYMBOL will often be implicit in the Lisp

I occasionally scan the list on GMANE, more often so when I'm involved
with a discussion.  I.e. no reason to CC me on discussions where I'm
already involved, but if someone want my opinion on a new subject,
CC'ing me is a good idea.
