I wowuld like to see what Morrison would do, because he gave us a really neat version of "Flash of Two Worlds" that worked with the one-world concept without really destroying the original work laid down by the original creators.

But if we're looking at a new origin of the JSA, what would everyone suggest? I have some thoughts, but I'd be curious what other people think...

It was a good story, but like Thomas' re-write of the JSA origin, he was basically re-writing a pre-existing story to make it fit into a post-Crisis world.

Think I'd chuck the Levitz origin completely, go with something that is a little more fitting in with the early JSA tales, ie common thugs, a single mastermind, etc: individual crimes that involve the JSA as individuals and as they follow the clues, they begin to meet up and realize they are all working on the same but wide-spread case, a nation-wide criminal organization. Could have robots, cthulu-esque monsters/sorcerers for the Dr. Fate and Spectre chapters, but over all, keep it a bit more grounded.
