No, it's not, not until the UI reflects that.  The issue with
Customize as it stands is that it's organized according to the
developers' tastes, and groups are strongly module-oriented, although
users often see commonalities not reflected in the implementation's

If we're going to go in the direction of d.i.u-style tagging, what I
think is needed is some way to communicate users' idea (ie, some sort
of consensus which may still be somewhat ambiguous or confused, not
coherent, well-thought-out individual systems) to the distribution.
