I can tell you now that at least for me it is definitely not acceptable.
The code in AUCTeX should be easily maintainable by anyone familiar with
plain Emacs Lisp.  Having to learn the workings of something like eieio
would add another barrier for understanding the code.

You haven't explained for what purpose you need and object-oriented
approach.  If it is only for data structures you could use plists.
Wouldn't this suffice?
