It looks like the old school clones are now more or less set in stone but Smash 4 added two more in desperate need of gameplay shake-up &. As it stands they are merely tournament legal custom move sets. Poor DP sin't even considered a different character on most lists.
For Lucina, I'd make her sword longer or make her attack speed a bit faster. And definitely give her some different animations like Roy did. Dark Pit, tear it down and start over. KI:U has a lot to choose from.
Lucina should use her sword with two hands but still do most of the basic moves Marth does. I don't want her to be any thing more than a semi-clone honestly. Let her keep the same statistics to so she remains pretty much an alternative options for Marth users like she is now.
Only clone I seriously want reworked is Ganondorf. And even then he should keep a few of his staple moves as U Air, F Air, D Air, Jab, F Tilt and Side B.
