Just to be clear: I’m not looking at implementing it.  But I’d need to know what direction we were moving in *if* I were to implement a WYSIWYG custom pad editor.

If we’re going to allow a shape per layer, then it pretty much needs to be a repurposed PCB_BASE_FRAME.  If we’re going to do something like Altium then we probably just want a canvas with shape tools and the point editor.
