On hand I would like to introduce (more) GUI for common stuff, OTOH I would like to keep TextMate more of an engine with a lot of customization possibilities (which can’t always be captured by a single GUI switch).

FWIW, here's an idea:

Would it be possible to expose an API for bundles to provide their own "preference pane", a la System Preferences? I'm imagining an interface something like Growl's Applications tab—a page in TextMate's Preferences window with a list of bundles in the sidebar, and an area on the right with settings for that bundle.

It wouldn't enable anything you can't already do with the Bundle Editor, but it would be much more *discoverable* for those who don't want to be required to hack on their bundles.
