It is a generic problem that customize variables are only visible when
a package is loaded.  It should be fixed, but for all variables, not
by adding autoloads for individual variables.

There is certainly nothing that merrits treating
'custom-unlispify-tag-names', at the time where you are annoyed that
the variables are unlispyfied, you are most likely to be in a
custimize buffer (and thus, have cus-edit.el loaded).

A tooltip would be better.  But I think the UI is already overloaded.
Given the target audience of customize, the UI should be kept much
more minimal than it is.

Setting custom-unlispify-tag-names to nil by default might be better,
I don't remember why we ended up with the current value.
