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,
more practical.

Just my 2 cents.
