What do you think?

I like it IFF this means you’re able to override single entries of this
    \override Score.MetronomeMark.details.note-size = -5
But I’d suggest not to use a ‘?’ here but call it parenthesize (if it is
given a boolean? or boolean-or-symbol? as I suggested above) or
parentheses without a ‘?’ (if it is given a markuplist as David
suggested). Maybe use both?
    \override Score.MetronomeMark.details.parenthesize = #'if-text
    \override Score.MetronomeMark.details.parentheses = \markuplist {
"[" "]" }
I don’t think “wacky” things like Kieren’s example can be done like this
but you could do such complicated things as you could before by simply
using a markup in the \tempo.

I’d suggest to only handle “note = number” tempos here and open another
issue for “note = note” tempos. There we could discuss whether to have a
new command \tempoEquiv or use the “old” \tempo but with a different
syntax like \tempo 4 ~ 2.
