But then Tk will need a lot of work if XS is not going to be
compatible as it stresses XS now :-)
I see a thin thread of hope. Are the ties via references user-visible?
I am not sure what you mean ...
I mean, can Tk be changed to work without C<tie $$ref>, or is it part
of Tk's public (documented) interface?
the documented interface is

$obj->configure(-variable => \$foo)

where configure is an XS defined method. Given the reference the XS code
must be able to arrange for C code to be called on either FETCH or STORE.
It is currently done with 'U' magic.

Other than wholesale changes XS side (which are inevitable) I don't see
a problem.
