I've forwarded this to the web-sig list, where discussions about this
issue have been taking place.  The discussions have mostly been about
adding a new module (mostly to decouple web frameworks from the
facilities that web hosting providers offer), but I don't see why the
old cgi module shouldn't be dealt with at the same time.
