If it looks, tastes and smells like icewm, then it is icewm.  Yes, there are
precedents for such things. But they take time.  For instance, bonnie++
superceded bonnie.  For a time, both existed in the archive, but eventually
bonnie++ prevailed.  So if someone wants to "build a better icewm", go for
it.  I don't think anyone will obstruct them.  For the time being, however,
your question remains entirely hypothetical because, as you have guessed,
there currently is no such beast.
