I'd prefer them to just not use the term "mutant" if that's Marvel's only legal option but we're definitely getting cheated out of some great mythos.
Fox can't keep Marvel from using Wanda & Pietro because both studios share their rights. Marvel can't mention that they are mutants of that Magneto is their father, but everything else is theirs to use.

There are a lot of creative ways to get around the mutant issue. Magda, the twins' mother, gave birth to them on Wundagore Mountain, where the forces of both science and magic are extremely strong. The fact that their midwife/nanny was the High Evolutionary's creation Bova the Cow-Woman (one of my favorites) is an indication of just how many bizarre influences were at play around their birth. Additionally, Wanda was imprinted by the demon Chthon at birth, which impacted her powers.

Marvel's writers could easily explain away their abilities by saying that while Magda was present her unborn babies were changed by the genetically-engineered microorganisms (or chemicals) created by the High Evolutionary and released near her mountain home. At the same time, Chthon's magic latched onto Wanda and increased her "hex" powers, making them incredibly powerful as well as dangerous. That would neatly resolve the mutant dilemma while also introducing HE and all of his creations, including Adam Warlock, into the MCU.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
