I think customization is a large part of any source game, with TF2 still in it's prime it receives regular customization daily on gamebanana.
One way they could bring it back would be through allowing their servers to have customization back, or making a new set of servers specifically for custom content,
i.e. Valve Payload Server (Virginia #2) Custom #1
