Including in dusty environments? Or will these bushings be inside of a sealed off area?

They will run in a reasonably clean environment.
That is if I manage to sort a reasonable type of sealing against nature.
That will be mandatory though, as those bearings are too expensive to wear down left and right, counting out the hassle it is to replace them, which I also find unacceptable.

I just figured, if you're redesigning a fork from scratch, that you might be making integrated bushings/seals.

Must the bushings be press fit? Or, can you manufacture the lowers with recessed areas matching the bushings where the two can "lock" into place?

The bushings are going to be very hard to get into a recess I think. ;)

Or did I misunderstand you?

Just wondering out loud if there's a better way to secure the bushing in the lower. Maybe press-fit is the absolute best option...

Ok, then I get it ;)

I plan on a mix of press-fit and clamping.
Like 0.07-0.08mm press-fit, and clamping them with a spacer tube in between the bushings.
That way the upper bushing has a nice seat as well, and the upper will be held in place with a washer.

I think you should mold it in-place from molten ptfe-composite.

Because Magura got caught in a work spell :-(
Best news from here at this point, is that I'm gonna make a couple of carbon saddles tomorrow.

Lol, I fully understand that. Life has a way of interfering with hobbies. ;)
