That's still not very clear.  For example, we could split the
customization "by package" (more or less) while still loading all the
customizations at startup.  So it would satisfy your above requirement,
but not the requirement you sent earlier (quoted below).

And it's still not clear how that would change your life, as an Emacs user.

Again, I'm not arguing against it, really, but there are many ways to
"do it" with very different results, and some answers may correspond to
one of your descriptions yet might fail to really solve your problem.
So, if you could give us an example of a concrete problem you face, that
would help.
E.g. "loading my customization file takes too long".
Or "I get lost in my customize-changed".
Or "I share my customization between different systems but some
customizations are system-specific so I don't want to share those".
