The context of the subject is perpetual so sorry for moving in circles.

Who is going to decide which of them are important? Why do I have to limit
myself when you are not even going to care about it? Would you be able to
sacrifice your own habbits for something saner? Because I know many devs (or
users), that wouldn't be willing to do so.

My opinion is: Please don't make the standards stricter (of accepting;
quality standards should remain high), because it will backfire. Usability
can be improved while importing new settings at the same time. Given that
complex features/settings are quite rare and most ones are of low binsize
difference, it shouldn't hindrance battery runtime significantly at least
for the distant future.
