I've always wanted to run a phalanx type character, going heavy armor, shield and spear, but in the base game it's 2 Handed only, and it's built in a way that doesn't allow for mods to have 1 handed versions, without frustrating options like coding it as a longsword instead.
While I don't expect there to be one handed spears in the vanilla experience, support having things like one handed spears would be quite nice. If each of the melee weapons (except I guess short blades?) had the ability to be coded as a one or two handed weapon, I think it'd add for more flexibility in modding without changing too much within the game.

Not a dev, but this falls squarely on the content side, that is, it can be done with a mod and once Lua is in shape, most of the (non-graphical) drudgery of making 1-handed versions of 2-handed weapons can be programmed away.
