Externally spawned mobjs
I would like for Doomsday to support the ability to create
new Things in a .ded file and simply add it to a specified
folder and it automatically adds that Thing id into the
This would allow greater customization of Doom as you
could simply add it to a pk3 and instantly create new
Things in Doom without needing to have a long
explanation of how to customize or overwrite

This has been available in Doomsday for a long time. Using
DED you can even define entirely new monsters (as long as
they use the existing actions).
Do you actually mean being able to create a list of THINGS
in a DED, with coords, that will be spawned on a map
addtionaly to those within the map THING lump?

This is already almost possible with a Map Info definition that executes a bunch of spawnmobj commands. The caveat is that the same command is executed also after loading a savegame.
A more correct approach would be to add a script that only gets run as part of map initialization.
