My 2 cents:
Why not creating packages for each widget ? and use collective.js to
package js resources.

I know it does many packages but with zopeskel it's questions of few
seconds and make maintenance easier.

> I want to introduce collective.z3cform.widgets, a package currently
> containing 3 widgets we have developed for projects we are working on:
> TaskWidget (which is an awful name that surely will be changed on next
> release) is a widget that lets you add a list of values to a field.
> it was inspired by the widget used to add tasks to an user story in
> Pivotal Tracker (now you know where the name came from), so you can add,
> edit, delete and reorder the values entered easily; it uses the jQuery
> taskplease plugin written by quimera.
> https://github.com/Quimera/**tasksplease<https://github.com/Quimera/tasksplease>
> this widget will be used in packages like collective.polls and
> collective.newsflash.
> KeywordsWidget is a tokenizing autocomplete text entry that uses jQuery
> Tokeninput and will be used on subjects fields; you can see a demo here:
> http://loopj.com/jquery-**tokeninput/<http://loopj.com/jquery-tokeninput/>
> RelatedContentWidget (which is an awful name also) is a widget to manage a
> list of relations dynamically created from an ObjPathSourceBinder's source;
> I think it uses plone.formwidget.autocomplete.
> it's very useful on sites with tens of thousands of content items, like
> news sites, where you don't want to show a content tree because is simply
> not practical.
> it works more or less this way: the user clicks the widget button to add
> related items; a modal window is shown; on the left we have the items
> already related and you can erase them from there; on the right we have a
> list of items available to be related; the widget looks for the 10 most
> recently published items and show them in batches of 10 items with a small
> preview; the user can make a text search looking for items that contain
> certain words; the user can drag & drop objects to the list of related
> items.
> we are planing a couple of additional widgets based probably on jQuery
> Chosen plugin:
