It should work for all variables, of course, not just for 
customizable variables.

In the above linked thread there was a discussion about the 
possible implementation and it was quite simple.

I think it was pressing e for edit in the Help buffer, then
the buffer is narrowed to the variable value only (which can be a 
complex list or anything) which you can modify in place and
then press C-c C-c to apply it to the variable and exit
edit mode.
