I don't think adding another customization file format helps, because
that would just mean you'd have to learn that in addition to learning
som basic Lisp.  That makes it harder to use Emacs, not easier.

If we want to make it easier to customize Emacs without knowing Lisp, I
think the best place to start is `M-x customize' and related commands.
There is definitely a lot of room for improvement there.

See (info "(emacs) Customization").
