What needs to be done to make this happen? I'm assuming at a minimum the gerber viewer, worksheet editor, calculator, and bitmap converter applications would have to be retooled to be child windows of KiCad instead of running in separate processes. To be honest, I'm not sure how this would fly. I know there are quite a few users who prefer to run Eeschema and Pcbnew as stand alone apps so I wouldn't see why this would be any different on macos. I'm not opposed to doing this but we should you the Kiway interface so we can keep them as separate apps on other platforms.

Is it possible that we are missing something with the macos signing that would allow us to use our current design? I don't pretend to know anything about macos (the gift that keeps on giving) so I'm just playing the devils advocate here. Maybe there is something we are over looking that would make our life easier.
