I believe that I will implement it using one or two new predefined
:initialize functions.  Once I have done that, I will send diffs and
if accepted I will document them in the Elisp manual.  I will not take
care of between 20 and 30 options, some of which I know nothing about,
all by myself, however.  Some of them are hooks or listvars and for
hooks and listvars, a proper solution requires more extensive changes,
as we discussed some time ago.  So we will not be able to fix those
right away.

   Question: How will users see/detect/understand this behavior? What will they
   see in "Show initial Lisp expression"?

The exact same thing they would see if they used any other :initialize
function.  The :initialize function should not and will not have any
effect on that.
