What if (some) show instances where alternative representations are
possible, were moved out of Prelude?

A selection of modules with alternative show instances would be available
from stand alone modules. To be imported as needed.

For example, bytestring may be 'show'ed in different ways.

Less convenient than now, backward incompatible yet simple enough.
