Indeed, the customize type needs to be fixed. Patch welcome!

I'm not even sure about what you are talking about.

Allowing to extend `org-emphasis-alist' with any marker means there is
not anymore a single Org format. Any one can define its own with fancy
markers. This is not portable.Besides, having syntax you cannot control
is asking for trouble. I'm totally against this idea.

Org already provides 6 emphasis markers, which is enough in my book.

On the other hand, you may be only interested in marking some text with
a special face in a buffer. Both Org and Emacs provide ways to do that
without messing with Org syntax. As pointed out in the thread,
`org-font-lock-set-keywords-hook' is one of them.
