I don't think overwriting / adding 'sysext' via GUI is a good idea. The 
according install tool setting should be dropped, functionality thrown 
away in  6.0 em. Overloading a sysext is possible by stuffing it to 
'global' or 'local'.

Other than that, I'm fine with 'global' extensions approach as we 
currently have it, afaik it is also not stated anywhere that it is 
'highly discouraged', current content of typo3/ext/README:

This is only a placeholder. You can use this directory for storing 
global extensions.
However, try to use locally installed extensions instead (in 
typo3conf/ext/) in order
to keep the TYPO3 core directory clean of user defined contents.
