A separate user session would be the best user experience, IMO.

That's a non-argument. We can improve it.

The Tweak Tool is *completely* the wrong place for this. In what way
is completely changing the shell a "tweak"? How does it make sense to
be able to completely change the experience using a setting that is
included in a non-core application, and which could later be removed?
What kind of experience will you get when the shell transitions to
"classic" mode right in front of the user's eyes?

The Tweak Tool shouldn't have anything to do with extensions. They are
something that you install and run as a part of the system, not
something to be "tweaked" via settings.
