AFAIK, the current way of doing things is already to use customizability as
a criterion for user-variable-p, making * only meaningful for defvar but
not for defcustom.  Are you saying that you want to remove even the
support for * in defvar (instead relying exclusively on defcustom)?
That would be fine by me, but it's more than I'm trying to do here
(which is to bring the doc in line with the code).
