Thanks ! :-) It's at least an investment into experience. I had
thought of such a concept for quite a while, but without actually
implementing it, there's no way of knowing whether it actually
makes sense in real life.

Yeah, I thought you'd say that :-) But I hope it can at least be
useful as an example for the functionality. Also, in case we
decide on a common direction, people could use fped while KiCad's
"official" footprint editor is still being worked on, and switch
once the feature set they need is available.
