I agree that the customizing aspect is important, but I just don't
know how to handle the accept/reject thing.

Well, err, the obvious idea is to have (DND-TYPE TEST FUNCTION)
triples instead of pairs, where the TEST has an arg specifying where
the drag is going to happen.

But since it is so obvious, you have surely thought about it and
rejected it.  What was the reason for rejecting this idea?

I thought that would be too complex for a user to customize. For example,
going by the discussion, we want different behaviour if dropping to
a menu bar, dired buffer, read only buffer, or writable buffer.   It may
be that I think this is more complex than it actually is, though.
