This is good new information, thanks!
A sensible approach might be:
1. Allow the implementation of Schnorr signatures
2. In parallel, address the issues raised on the segwit2x codebase
3. Unfreeze the segwit2x code, and seek a dialogue with core on a timeline
for a 2x block size increase
The reason being that we've just had a capacity upgrade and segwit is
starting to kick in. Blocks are less congested now. Schnorr will likely
give another 30% capacity quite soon. This will allow general hardware
increases to make moving to 2x blocks, without a contentious hard fork,
Just my 2 cents.
