Let me understand - anyone could take my fahrzeugausweis to the strassenverkehrsamt, cancel my registration and re-register the car in their name; ...
Yes.

... yet I should keep this document with my car, where, if the car is stolen, the thief would also have the document and could then claim that I had sold the vehicle to them?
You are to not have the grey card in your car. I seem to remember it's actually forbidden exactly for this reason, though I could wrong on this part.

Either have it on you personally (e.g. in your wallet) or only a copy in the gloves compartment (e.g. multiple drivers). Legally you're still breaking the law with just a copy, but most cops will accept it if you say it's for security reasons. Otherwise, 20CHF fine isn't the world and probably quite a bit less than the cars value.

Most unlikely as almost all Swiss keep the grey card in the car, Garages always rush to get it if they need to order parts. Every company car I drove for multiple companies always had it in the glovebox. It's a legal requirement to have the original if you cross borders, a photocopy will not satisfy foreign police.

Die Mobiliar insurance company says on its website that it is obligatory to carry the grey "Fahrzeugausweis" in the vehicle:
