Maybe my answer was a bit to fast ;-)

I aggree with you. As the final system i would see FreeMiNT and XaAES.

But i think, there was not much wasted time and work. You need the BIOS and XBIOS of TOS. This is much more work than i expect for the GEMDOS part. You need a VDI driver. If you have a VDI driver for a TOS/GEM environment, you can expand this driver to any other GDOS system. For the AES of a TOS/GEM system i expect much less work than for the VDI driver.

I think, to start with a TOS/GEM as a base is not wasted time because most of the work is needed or can be reused for a MiNT/XaAES system. But i would not start to patch a existing TOS for this work. I think, a system based on EmuTOS was much more easy to set up and reusing the VDI driver was much more easy with new sourcecode.

Best regards
