I've often done this and it doesn't seem like too much work. But I don't
dispute your evaluation.

My approach is different to Fred's because I rarely call setUpWidgets in
my form code. I have a bunch of custom widgets in a known place and use
custom_widget. Some widgets are for special fields or needs and some are
as simple as this one. I reuse it very often.:
def __init__(self, context, request):
super(TextAreaWidget, self).__init__(context, request)
self.height = 3
self.width = 85
