That would mean that in multifile packages the defcustoms must always be
put in one single file, which must be named according to the
customisation group one wants to create. And creating multiple
customisaton groups for a single package (not uncommon in larger
packages) would require multiple files.

That's to say, such a system would require that the code of a package be
organised along the lines of the customisation groups it provides. But
customisation is a UI feature, and as such does not necessarily present
the best way to organise the code.
