kind of unrelated as yes it would be nice to have a clean restful backend but it takes time/ppl to convert/re-write every part of the core, as there are a lot of moving pieces. To wait on that to be accomplished to upgrade the ACP to modern practices is a false assumption. With modern tooling in place and a front-end framework its far easier to modify and update the ACP theme especially when adding twig to the mix down the road to take advantage of said improvements.

My opinion also reconverting every part of the core will take more time and people. So I think it's better to modify and update ACP theme since there is no severe bugs in the admin core code. Current front end technologies, there are many in-built libraries that we can utilize easily to modify the ACP theme.
